you finish out that last long run before your taper no matter what happens. This was my sister-in-law's facebook post this morning: "I've experienced some really cool things while running, but being sprayed by a skunk 2 miles into a 20 mile run is definitely not one of them!" Turns out my brother was also sprayed and then they finished the run out. At a fairly decent pace, they wanted to get home fast. So I feel bad for them, but a least now I'm not the "crazy" runner of the family anymore.
