Pre race rituals? (Read 458 times)


Member Since 2008

    Does anyone out there have any pre race rituals they would like to share? Suck as pre race meals, etc... Mine is that I have to watch "Fire on The Track, the Steve Prefontaine Story" before a race. My wife says it is depressing, but It has the same effect on me as 'Rocky", it pumps me up.


    Needs more cowbell!

      I make sure I finish my coffee a good 90 minutes before the start of the race (same for regular training runs, too)...never have had to use a port-a-john yet! Big grin k

      I shoot pretty things! ~

      • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

      • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

        I go to a sandwich place called "The Honey Hole" for a sandwich and a dark beer every night before I race (unless I'm racing out of seattle in which case I have a sandwich and a beer elsewhere). I'm actually working with the Honey Hole right now on getting a jokey-joke sandwich/beer sponsorship.
