In addition to your run, cross-train at least one day a week.
Halfway Through Training
Check your shoes to make sure they aren’t worn down and get expertly fitted to help avoid injuries.
Three Weeks Before the Race
Select your running outfit and do a few long runs in it to make sure it will be comfortable throughout the race.
Write your name on your shirt. People in the crowd will cheer for you by name if they can see it.
During the Race
Refuel throughout if your race is more than an hour long. Gels, chews and dried fruit will help keep you going with electrolytes, vitamins and carbs.
