I'm no expert, but your plan looks solid to me.  I really like your idea of a 2 week taper.  I think we hear too much about 3 weeks, but your mileage is solid and I'm coming around to thinking that when peaking at 90+ miles you are probably “not” the person that most books are talking to.  Your “attempt” at sub3 looks like a sure thing, with  2:55 pretty doable, I doubt there is a real lot you could do wrong, even if your taper isn't dead on, diet a little off, sleep deprived, first mile too fast…you'll get 3 hours.

so I guess……I have no advice :).  You're under control.
