“Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it’s all about.” ~PattiSue Plumer, U.S. Olympian
In the next two days, thousands of people will descend upon Nashville, rain or shine, with one goal in mind: to finish the CMM half or full marathon. For those of you who are going to be running the race, or cheering people on, the Tennessean has put together a great marathon guide. Writer Jessica Bliss gives you the info on the Expo, places to go eat, a course map and even roads to avoid if you are driving around Nashville on Saturday. I was so excited and honored when I was asked to be a part of the marathon guide on the Tennessean’s On Nashville site.
I wrote the piece so people can learn from my mistakes. You’ve put in the work, now it’s time to relax and have fun. While you’re relaxing, head on over to my guest post featured on the On Nashville website to see what I’ve learned about race prep since running, what you can do, my top 7 things to do the week of the race and why now is the time to Eat well, rest well and have fun!
Let me know how you’re preparing or what your race week rituals are!
