Misty tapering

Met a guy in a Comrades jacket. First time I’ve heard someone say “Last year I came 8000 something. This year I want to improve my position.” Other than those the very top athletes I didn’t think people cared much about position.  Misty eyed about runningOther numbers worry me: ~17.5 times my little 5k route seems hard. 10 times my 9k seems easy. 1 x 90k nearly impossible. The numbers of running eh? I’ll stay with this morning bright moon, the rising fog, espressos and the thought of just one more medal. Oh, and I am practicing what it will be like on race day. Ran with my timing chip this morning – to get used to its weight. Got all misty-eyed about what might happen on the big day.
