Tapering down mileage in anticipation of a race is hard after pushing, pushing, pushing to increase mileage. But that's what today is: the start of the taper. Our half marathon is in 9 days.

No Zumba today; but I will do 3 miles on the treadmill. Then off to Little Rock for our race package for the Color Run tomorrow! Cannot wait to end up covered in color! I believe I must be the oldest kid on the planet.

After packet pickup we are back on the hunt for hiking boots. Two pair will be returned and I will be looking for a waterproof version of the hiking shoes. If I can't find them at the superstores in Little Rock I'll order them online. To show you I'm not the only indecisive one in the family, TC will be returning one pair and beginning the search anew as well!

Happy Friday, Sparkworld! emoticon

    Enjoy your adventure.
Better to have well fitting boots than sore feet and blisters.
