It’s Taper Time …Disney Dopey Marathon weekend is less than 4 weeks away.

Taper Time.  The hard training runs are done. I will cut my mileage down a lot in the next few weeks to allow the body to rest and regain the energy to excel on race day. My overall plan is to run a few 3 miles during the weeks to maintain my fitness.  Also, during the taper, I am looking forward to putting on my comfy sweats, relaxing on the couch, and enjoying the holiday festivities. Chanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s! 

This was a big running test week. The week called for a mock Dopey simulation. On Monday I ran 3 miles, Tuesday I ran 6 miles, Wednesday I ran 13 miles, and Thursday I ran 20 miles.  This will be my last Dopey simulation before The Disney Marathon Weekend.  Most of the miles were done indoors.

On Saturday, I rewarded my hard work by attending an Andrea Bocellli concert at TD Garden Boston. The concert was fabulous. He is a brilliant artist, and his voice is fantastic. Magnificent show.

Just an update.  I am running the Dopey Challenge on behalf of the American Lung Association.  This week was a 42-mile training week. Lots of hours on my feet
