Race season is heating up across most of the U.S., so I wanted to do a special race week edition of the podcast to share the "Golden Rules of Race Day."
A few years ago, I was in amazing shape and was prepared for a half marathon PR, but when the race started, a few things happened that were out of my control. These things cost me several minutes and I wasn't able to hit the time I was shooting for that day.
As I complained to friends and had a pity party, some good conversations arose, and I realized that we needed more awareness around some of the "rules" of racing that no one tells us.
I don't want to give you more to stress about, so most importantly, remember that runners are a good group of people. We love welcoming others to the runner family. And we are all there to have a good time and to participate in an activity that we love.
That said, I'm going to share some ideas that might give you, and everyone around you, a better race day experience. I'd love to hear what you think about this list, and I'd love to find out what you'd add. Share your comments by emailing me at [email protected] or by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn. I am @Powerofrun on most social media.
