As I am about to run my 29th marathon in 2 days and packing I'm thinking about all that is important to my rituals. Some started at the beginning and others have developed through the years...
Carrying water everywhere the days before, snacking on almonds, apples, bananas, veggies/hummus and granola all day. Frequent snacking keeps me better fueled and prevents me from over doing a big meal. Plus this way I don't grab junk to eat.
Dinner of Sweet Potatoes and vegan protein. Being a celiac runner has taught me to find a non gluten carb that is easily found everywhere. Sweet potatoes are a staple in my diet.
Laying out my flat Jen and posting pics to my MRTT group. For me this usually involves multiple outfit options in case weather changes! I'm super picky on my running clothes.
Race morning up and ready to eat 2 hours before. Breakfast of banana, GF oats mixed with pea protein and coconut. Coffee of course!
Foam Rolling! One of my newer rituals. Get those muscles loose and ready to run.
UCAN! 30 min prerace, a combo of either orange or cran/raz mixed with vanilla.
What are your pre-race rituals?
