National
Running Day was this past Wednesday, and with the weather warming up,
there are sure to be several races in your area. If you are planning
on participating in any upcoming races this summer – whether it is
a 5k, 10k, half-marathon, or full marathon – this infographic will
help you perform to your fullest potential.

From
driving along the race route the day before to familiarize yourself
with every twist and turn, to pre-race meals and nutritional advice,
this infographic is full of great information and tips to help you
enter race day in tip-top shape. Here are some key takeaways from the
infographic:
  • Avoid
    buying new gear
    during the week prior to the race. You want
    everything to be broken-in and comfortable
  • The
    day before the race, stay away from heavy meals. Instead, eat
    small amounts of carbs several times throughout the day.
  • Stop
    drinking water 30 minutes before the race
    to avoid bloating and
    that “gotta go” feeling.
  • Run
    the first 10% of the race at a slower pace to save your energy
    for the final stretch.
