How To Prepare for Race Day.

 (posted: Apr 03, 2014)

After months of training for your event, the week before is most stressful time. Waiting for your big race from the 5k to a Full Marathon the mind plays games with you, and you may become anxious do your best to stay calm during week with yoga breathing exercises stretching as well reading as they all are very good for you. Watch some pumped up inspirational movies, read an inspirational story, engage with supportive running friends. Make sure you eat well during the week fuel up with complex carbohydrates, oatmeal, whole grains, quinoa, drink plenty of water, rehydrate with vegetables and fruit and consume quality protein. Prepare your running shoes, socks running gear ready and pin on your bib on your shirt the night before look in the mirror and say Here I come, it’s my journey that I have been training and waiting for, mine time to shine! Get a good night rest ,wear the same shoes and socks that you train in.Races that begin at 7 am make sure you up by 5, drink a glass of water, eat a small meal. Bring layers of clothing to stay warm, use our frogbox service to store your personal items during the race and most importantly kick butt! Race Director, Ian Barron.
