JACKIE VELING WROTE A TOTALLY GREAT article (“list-icle” actually), “The 10 Commandments of Race Day” in an ACTIVE.com post. There are several more weeks to train before you will run a St. Patrick’s Day race. However, some of the practical advice she provides requires you to think ahead about sizing up the course, what to wear, drink/eat, how to approach the race, and pace yourself. I would save this article for reference, especially if you are relatively new to competing. It’s VERY GOOD. Thank you Jackie!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
