Baby steps:

The early bird gets the worm:

Give yourself time to start your training early. Slowly building up stamina and mileage will help to achieve your pace goals while reducing your change of injury.

Sweat it out:

Daily runs and workouts will be your best friend.  Switch it up between interval sessions and long runs that help to get stronger and prevent your body from becoming tired throughout the race.

Hydrate and rest:

H2O H2O H2O and allow your body to recover! Consistently pushing yourself is great, but remember to work smarter not necessarily harder.
