Race Week

Well it's race week again for anyone taking part in the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon weekend.

It's important at this point of your training to take it easy, relax, get lots of sleep and not to screw up all the training you've done.

Another good tip is to stick to what you know. Don't try any new spicy foods in the last few days (especially the night before the race). Stay away from (or limit) the alcohol and caffeine.

Now is not a good time to switch to new running shoes or clothes either. You will be better to run in the same shirts and shorts you've done some of your longer training runs in.

Most importantly, just relax, have fun and celebrate your accomplishments.
