Cabot Virtual Race, October 2014

So now that you've made the decision to race, we want to help support your fitness goals. Getting ready for any race takes planning and preparation.

Here are three tips to help you bring your best to the start line:

  1. Visualize success. The mind is a powerful tool. If you're a novice racer, it's easy to let nerves take over before the race. Picture yourself in the race feeling relaxed and confident. Imagine how you'll feel crossing the finish line. Keep these positive thoughts in your mind, letting them banish the race jitters
  2. Manage the details. It's easier to relax and run your best race if you know you've dotted all your i's and crossed your t's.  Get your race necessities – bib number, safety pins, replacement fuel and your music – ready the night before. When running a virtual race, you can make you own mini-water stop by leaving water bottles along your route, or recruit friends to cheer you on along the way!
  3. Fuel your body. What you put into your body will determine what you get out of it. Eating a nutritious diet every day will help you race faster, feel more energized and recover more quickly.

    Check out our Nutrition Tips for Runners to learn more about fueling your body pre and post-race.
