Thanks for the comments on my ORRRC half report--it was a small race, but had a big heart. Would like to do it again. Hopefully, the color of the shirt will be different, lol.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I think because I live in a rural area and have done lots of training by myself with no support nearby in the form of stores or parks, I didn't really find the trail racing to be that much different other than the terrain. There are no hills where I live, so that was a new challenge. However I have slipped on pine needles, and even almost wiped out when I stepped on a bone of a small animal and it rolled under my foot during my training runs in my neighborhood. The Corbett race has me a little nervous only from the standpoint that there is the possibility of running into wild hogs/boar, and maybe alligator and snakes. That race is IN my neighborhood and I have hiked there before, so I know the dangers. I will definitely report on that race. I'm off to check out the Trail Running group. Thanks!

Yes, the lentil chips need to be added to the "don't have them hanging around the house" list. I think I'd be okay if I buy them for Book Club or something, where I can rely on the other members to eat some so I don't eat them ALL!!

Ultimately, during the taper period, I will listen to my body and what it needs. Far from the athlete I used to be, and given that running is very new to me, I am only basing my success on the taper as a swimmer and one 10K race, and all the reading I do. My last two LSRs are 12 and 11 miles. The last week, I am scheduled for a 4M ER, 30 min Tempo Run and a 2M run with two days rest before the race. I am thinking even that is too much for me. I may skip the tempo run or replace it with a 2M run, but it will depend on how well the 11th week taper goes.

Thanks for the info.

Taper is what I would work hard for as an intercollegiate swimmer aqnd diver. It was ingrained in me for 10 years before a big event. No runner should take it lightly. It is a very important tool.

Thanks for your comment, maybe we can spread the word.
