Tips for Runners by Amy of J & A Racing

Don't try anything new (make sure you have done enough training for you event). 

Make sure you eat something healthy before the race. 

Try on your clothing before running your race. Make sure nothing rubs and makes you uncomfortable. 

Don't try any new foods. Everything you put in your body needs to agree with you before a race. 

Don't stress and enjoy the day!
