I am so so nervous my first race is this Saturday, i know you have tips for beginner runners, but what are your tips for beginner racers? thanks for every thing you do for us lost beginner running souls.
Hi beautiful! My tips are simple, especially for beginner races :)–
1. You will get nerves regardless…try to channel them into “excitement nerves,” use the nerves for adrenaline…which will propel you faster than you know ;)
2. TRUST your training. You’ve trained for this…your body knows what to do and is ready, it’s your mind you need to believe with now
3. BELIEVE in yourself…and your training, coaches, and everything you have put in to get to this point
4. Have fun…most importantly…have so, so much fun, enjoy every step, enjoy the journey. Racing is amazing, but the journey that leads you there is the best part.
GOOD LUCK YOU WILL DO GREAT!!! :)
