The week of a marathon is EXCITING. And nerve-wracking and maybe a little stressful. Whether this is your tenth marathon or your first, there is a lot to remember the week of your race.
I made a Marathon Race Week Guide for my athletes and I thought I would share part of it as a blog post with all of you. If you want the full guide complete with a packing list just email me and I can send it to you.
Here are a few of my key reminders!

There is nothing quite like the magic of a marathon. Enjoy it. Know it will be difficult at times, but there’s usually a good mile on the other side of a not-so-good one. I’m excited for you!
p.s. If you’re running Chicago Marathon, I have a full blog post on my experience here.
