3. Wake Up Early
If you’re not an early bird already, learn to be before experiencing a rude awakening on race morning. Since you’ll be off and running at around 7 o’clock and you need to be at the start line much earlier than that, you’ll want to know what it’s like to be out of bed well before the break of dawn. The last thing you want to do on race day is be rushing around with only seconds to spare, so give yourself plenty of time to wake up, get dressed, eat breakfast and get to the start line.
