Three Things Thursday - the 'Yeah, New York talk again' post

1. Taper madness is on! Big time! My knees are killing me, shin splints is back from the land far-far-away (where the heck did that come from???) and I'm afraid I'll catch a cold. I know...I should put my big girl pants on and not be such a cry baby, but still...it feels like my body is telling me it doesn't like this taper thing and it definitely doesn't like the thought of running a marathon.

For those of you that are laughing at me at this very moment, just read this article on taper madness. It's not just in my head, you know. ;)

2. This new Runningskirts.com Fall/Winter collection is not good for my financial status. Or any girl's financial status for that matter. Just wanted to share that...

I'm freezing out here! I. Need. Those. Tights!

3. 3 x 3 =

days left till the New York City Marathon!

9. heehee That movie is playing on one of our movie channels. It's so cute! You know, theres a lot of running in that movie too. ;-)

I love that skirt and tights but I'd blend in with the foliage a bit too much for this race. Hunting Season!

Don't worry your infection with Taper Maddness is almost over! Full recovery predicted.

You are not alone in your taper madness. I hadn't heard of that until this week, but everyone seems to have it.

I'm going to the RunningSkirts flagship store next month while visiting the in-laws. My bank account is not going to thank me, but my legs are. ;-)

That article is hilarious. I love the part about “Your race gear achieves high status”. Same old running socks but they get special treatment before the big day. LOL.
