Rest for Race Day

I usually take the day off before a race, the longer the distance, the more the taper, but usually at least 1 day off even for fun races like tomorrow. I don't know if fun is the right word, it's more of a measuring stick I guess, but it is fun. I used to only do a handfull of races a year, but last year really got into it. Motivated by others mainly and seeing improvement in races really helps to motivate also. Craig C. Says you have to be "race tough" before you can do an important race and I agree with that for myself, but it does seem like some people can just show up and run a good race. Am I rambling?

Went to the Y did some stretching, weights and abs. Would have been a nice day to run.
