Friday Rest day

Today's a rest day. On rest days, it always seems like something is missing. I feel that I need to be running or at least exerting myself in some way, but I know I shouldn't because my body does need rest. It is good for me and my muscles to repair themselves. Here's a great article with tips on tapering from Greatist, Tips for the Perfect Taper. I'm really hoping this taper will help me get a PR for Sunday's 5K. I'm getting pretty excited and a little nervous just thinking about it. :) 

What will be really fun, is watching the kiddos do their run because they have races for them as well. My 3 year old will be running 25 meters and my 4.5 year old will be running 50 meters. It should be fun to watch.
