Amanda’s Race Week Tips:

~Stay with what has been working for you. Do not switch to new shoes this week.
~Pin you race bib to your shirt with a safety pin before you leave the house for the race.
~Arrive to the race early so that you have enough time to find parking and walk to the Start line.
~Walk around before the race so that your body is warm.
~Don’t start too fast.
~Have fun!
