Spring is here!  We are entering the time of year that there seems to be a race somewhere every weekend.

You have dedicated a lot of time training in order to have the best experience possible, whether it be a 5K or a marathon.

Race day is your reward!

Remind yourself that no matter what happens on race day, it is a great day!   Be prepared to have fun and enjoy the little moments over the course of the race. Enjoy the weather, the scenery, the people, and the pure joy of simply inhaling and exhaling.

You’ll find plenty to enjoy along the course… but when the going gets tough, try to remember that simply finishing is a victory.  There is always another day, another race…and many times we might learn more from our struggles than our victories.

Crossing the finish line can be one of the most rewarding, celebratory experiences of your life.  So celebrate!
