After having put in all that hard work, you want to make the most out of your training on race day. Follow-these tips to ensure that your big event goes as smoothly as possible.
In the final nights before the race, review your training log, and reflect on all the time and effort your poured into training. Add up all the miles you logged while preparing to get to the starting line, and let that number serve as a reminder of your strength, commitment, and discipline.
