Hydrate and Rest
You’ve been training for weeks, but now its time to hit the brakes and get your body rejuvenated. Grab some H2O and relax—your body will feel like new on race day.
Eat Your Carbs:
Eating well and getting those carbohydrates will give your body the energy it needs to finish the 26.2 miles. Luckily, downtown Patchogue has a great variety of restaurants for you to get your bread and pasta!
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
The last thing you want to do is run a marathon tired. Make sure you a get a few nights of good sleep leading up to the run so your body can rebuild and restore your muscles!
Check the Weather Forecast:
While fall temperatures on Long Island are ideal for running, there is always a chance for unexpected weather conditions. Knowing the race day forecast will help you plan what and how much to wear.
Get Your Gear Ready:
There’s nothing worse than showing up on race day without your headphones or hair scrunchie! Make sure to lay everything out the night before so your set and ready to go in the morning.
Ready, set, race!
