I want to run a lot. The goal is to train for a marathon but race multiple half marathons and MAYBE run a marathon at the end of 2014. Injury-free as always!

      Just alter your expectations accordingly and I think you will still have an enjoyable race. There are some things you just can't control.

      Btw, I only did 2 weeks of taper for my 50 this year and it went great b/c I had missed some training b/c of the calf. If you training mileage/intensity hasn't been the best you can totally get by on a shorter taper.

      Thanks Julia! I was thinking I "feel" better, I'm at work, maybe I should try and get a run in today. I ran with a fever Saturday and I think that set me back more than the virus did. Will take it easy, hydrate and see how I feel Wednesday... Worse comes to worse, I'll do my 20 on the 29th after all that Turkey...

      I say definitely rest. You will be fine with a short taper. If you keep pushing, it will only set you back further. This stuff will linger longer if you run yourself down too much. It will all be good. :)

      This sounds pretty tough. But seems to me you did this slower than normal because of the illness - maybe that's why the ITB behaved?? Just a thought. Way to hang!

      Way to get out there in the cold! It's always interesting how we sort of have to relearn how to dress for the cold each year. I hope this foot thing subsides for you.
