  • Taper smart for the half marathon. This week is all about resting, hydrating and getting in just a few very low-key workouts before dominating the half next week.
  • Run a successful media panel for PPRA on Tuesday. I’m the VP of programs for PPRA and we have an awesome event this week that my committee and I are responsible for.
