If you have run a half-marathon or full marathon, then you probably know the concept of the taper. For those who have not, a taper is the scaling back of a training routine in the immediate lead-up to a big race in order to let your body fully rest and prepare for the effort. If you have kids, or ever were one, then hopefully you know the majesty that is the whimsical world of the Muppets. As Runner: On the Right hits the taper for a marathon, it can be helpful to relax and have a laugh. To that end, and as homage to a great Muppet film, please enjoy the following little movie, straight from the lily pad.
Here’s some simple advice: Always be yourself. Never take yourself too seriously. And beware of advice from experts, pigs, and members of Parliament.
