Summer Running Camp, Part 5: Race Day Walk-Through

A man in a sports uniform is running along the shore of the lake

With this week’s Equinox came the end of summer … and the official closing ceremony at the NMA Summer Running Camp.

If you missed the first four weeks of camp, here’s what we covered:

  1. Building consistency
  2. Running form
  3. How to prevent running injuries
  4. Advanced marathon training and racing with coach Jason Fitzgerald

After much consideration, Matt and I felt there was no better way to wrap things up than to head to the races.

In this week’s episode we share a complete race day walk-through. From port-o-potties to pacing, we present the whole picture and how to manage it.

Oh, and there’s a special treat at the top of this episode, so crank it up.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • The days leading up to your race — what you need to know
  • What to eat on race morning
  • Port-o-potties … how to handle the lines
  • Are pacing groups helpful?
  • Dealing with the marathon bonk
