Heidi - You can read 'beware the taper' in two ways. One is that you should be careful around some cute four legged animals, or that some people tend to go a bit bonkers when they reduce the mileage when they start their taper for a marathon!
Some known issues for tapers:
- Wanting to kill anyone who even looks like sneezing within 100 yards of you
- Thinking the slightest niggle is a sign that your leg is about to fall off
- Despite all evidence to the contrary thinking you haven't done enough and thinking wrecking your legs with just one more long run will make all the difference
- Checking that you did print the medical certificate and convocation at least five times a day
ahhh Love tapering season, all the work is done - just a couple of weeks of loopiness, packing, repacking and packing some more.
Orapid - it's a large T-shirt (2014 blue w yellow text) but just looked again and it doesn't have the Where the Foch tagline on the back, only the normal BCRC logo and design on the front. RS ordered a couple with no print on the back, so that people could put there own taglines, Boston Baby, Sub4 or Die, Look out Lector's About etc
