The CUCB blog has some awesome tips for race weekend. Be sure to check them out. The Social Media team has been awesome for this race. Such awesome people and I can’t wait to hang out with them this weekend.
I’ve seen lots of Twitter posts from lots of nervous runners. I totally understand the feeling, but have confidence in yourself. You put in the work. Trust your training.
Worried because your training didn’t go as planned? Don’t let it get you down. Plenty of people have showed up to a start line undertrained. Sure, it’s not ideal, and maybe you have to let go of those PR dreams, but you can still do this.
Trying to get in some last minute hard training? Don’t. This is taper week. Don’t just sit on your couch all week, but keep the training this week nice and light. The last thing you want to do is risk hurting yourself.
Most importantly, remember to have fun. Don’t worry about the weather or how fast others are running or the other things you can’t control. Just go out and do your best. And don’t forget to look at the blossoms! It’s a beautiful time to be in DC!
