Signing up for any race can be overwhelming, but don’t worry! It’s going to be fun training, pushing yourself and crossing that finish line! I’ve put together a packet just for you that is all about getting Race Day Ready. It includes tips on making a training plan that works for your schedule, how to prepare the night before the race, what to focus on race day and even how to deal with burn out when training. I’ve been running and training for all different types of races over the past 10 years, and these are just a few of my favorite tips and tricks to train better and make the most of race day.

All you have to do is sign up and your Race Day Ready Packet will be delivered to your email! I can’t wait to hear what race you’re going to run!

    I had been training for a half marathon…got shin splints and bad hamstring. I’ve taken it easy for the past couple of months and really miss it! I knocked my half that I signed up and made it into a relay instead…injury sucks!

      Thanks for your article on this website. From my very own experience, there are times when softening right up a photograph might provide the wedding photographer with a chunk of an inspired flare. Oftentimes however, that soft cloud isn’t just what exactly you had under consideration and can quite often spoil a normally good picture, especially if you intend on enlarging them.

      Hey Elle – Very true…when keeping in touch with people required some effort, we were much less inclined to do so as often as we do now, freeing up much more time for actual interaction. We’re all guilty, but at least we can still be aware of the situation and try our best to stay away from our devices as much as we can.And thanks for the link to your post

      On top of some of the "science" being on shaky grounds, lots of the forensic examiners are not going to be up to the presumed standards of the people in such shows, and many of the tests they routinely perform are not going to be done, simply because most of the time, there is not enough evidence to justify the expense.

      can we talk more about grains? i find it difficult to wrap my head around whole grains (soaked/sprouted/whatever) being something to avoid. sugar is well-understood, but grains? they are a prominent source of energy from what i’ve experienced and studied.and, how can one keep their weight up without eating grains. (especially as a vegetarian) are we talking about a certain quantity of grains or what are the specifics?i so appreciate your blog and all the effort you expend!
