Fueling Your Body

Are you ready when it really counts? What if all your training and factored as only a portion of your preparation?

 

Several years ago, I trained to run my first half marathon (Indy Mini 500) with my older brother. I didn’t sleep well, my nerves were shot, I didn’t have my regular food available, and I doubted if my training schedule really prepared me for the race. I got up early and tried to eat something from the hotel restaurant. We walked to the race start and found our coral.
