This was the Runner's World Daily Kick in the Butt quote today. It seemed to speak to me.
I had a good run this morning with Derek and Christie that reminded me a of a few race day keys
- 4 minutes faster than 100 mile race pace feels easy at mile 1
- Not drinking enough fluids results in lower blood volume and as a result my heart rate increases
- Dressing light in cold temperatures can be just the kick in the butt I need to keep moving (but have backup in case conditions worsen)
- Strategic walk breaks will increase my overall pace. Run comfortable => power hike like a beast
That is all. Keep calm and be awesome!
