The Cure for What Ails You

This weekend, I think I found the cure for taper madness. It's a three step program:
  • After work on Friday, go straight to the golf course. Immediately start drinking beer. Golf a round with your favorite girls. Continue drinking beer throughout the evening.
  • Saturday morning, cheer on someone you love running in a marathon. My sister ran Fargo (and did awesome - PR'd by over an hour and twenty minutes!!! Way to go Michele!).
  • Cheesecake and giftcard to the Nike store for Mother's Day. Need I say more?

Since undergoing my own little three-day program, I'm feeling much more relaxed. Good thing, because there's only six days to go until the marathon! That leaves me six days to research whether finding the cure for taper madness makes me eligible for a Nobel prize.

Sounds like you had the perfect weekend.

With just six days left, all you can do is sit back and get ready to kick ass.

Sounds like the perfect weekend cure! And I can't imagine anything better than seeing your sis PR just one week before your own marathon-- very cool!

I think that's highly nobel-worthy. And anything cheesecake doesn't fix, simply can't be solved.
