5 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  1. 1
    Drink regularly throughout the day so you do not start with a fluid deficit eat about 2-3 hours before the start of the race.
  2. 2
    Wear proper shoes for the race. Be sure your shoes have at 100-150 km on them before running a race. Having this amount of km on your shoes will help insure that you are well fitted for the shoe and that you will not have any skin irritation. Be sure to train and practice in the same sock/shoe combination that you will be wearing in the race. Your racing confidence will be high if you are not worrying about if you are going to get a blister or have foot or toe pain during the event.
  3. 3
    Wear loose fitting, breathable attire while racing. You want to be able to expend as much bodily heat as possible and be able to sweat efficiently too. Go for a technical, moisture wicking apparel to help draw sweat from your skin.
  4. 4
    Be prepared that meteorologists might have missed the forecast so be prepared with alternative equipment.
  5. 5
    Do a check-list, do you have everything? Shoes, coveralls, race wear, water, bib and chip?
  6. 6
    Finish Line: You’ve done it! 42,195 meters behind you, everything else in front of you! Soak your victory, let it sink through the body and the mind. Celebrate your accomplishment!
  7. 7
    After the race : Drink and eat as soon as possible even if you not are hungry. It helps your recovery significantly and bring you new energy quickly.
