That IS a great race - I've done it a couple of times myself. If scheduling works out, I might be there this weekend as well. For tapering, your plan sounds good in my opinion. Marathon tapering is probably a good model to follow: this week might look like: cross train 45 min, 4 mi, 3mi, 2mi, rest, rest, race. So yeah, very low miles, very easy - training is behind you, so this week is all about resting up while still keeping the "engine" warmed up. That's my theory, anyway :) I'm training for the Mid Mountain Marathon so I won't rest much this week and will treat it more like a long training run.
Anyone else have advice on what to do on the last taper week before a race?
