Cloudy & 61 degree.
After 6 hours of drive, we arrived in Erie under a cloudy sky. Temperature was on the cooler side. But we (Alex, Brandon, Jamie, PJ, YC, and myself) were in high spirit.
The race packet pick up was a breeze. We basically just walked up, showed our ID, and got checked in. No wait and took little time. Such is the benefit of a smaller marathon. And the course looked flat as advertised.
By now the rain forecast for tomorrow has been pushed back. I am hoping to run and finish the marathon before the rain sets in. So after a nice dinner and pleasant conversation with my fellow SRCers, I decide to turn in and get a quiet night & some sleep.
Feeling calm and carb loaded, I am prepared for tomorrow race. Now let’s see how well I execute.
What pre-race routines/ preparations do you follow?
