Training Strategies from Tylenol 8 Hour
We all want to put our best foot forward on race day. While the elements of weather and good old fashioned luck can't be predicted, there are strategies that can be practiced in training to help get you the results you desire.
Establish a pre-race ritual of what and when you will eat and drink. Determine the foods and fluids you are most comfortable with before your training runs. Don't try anything new before a race. This includes use of a pain reliever. Remember that Tylenol® 8 Hour is an effective choice for the big day and has an excellent safety profile.
This year, there will be even more MCM Health and Fitness Expo to experience just outside the Armory. The new area features activities and interactive entertainment including the Powerade rock wall, Ski Liberty demonstrations, Jazzercise, Chi Running instruction and much more! While there, carbo-load at the Pasta Mess Tent. Or sign up now for the more formal MCM Carbo Dining-In at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill featuring John "The Penguin" Bingham and the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team.
Family and friends can track a runner as split times and finish information will be sent instantly to a pager, text messaging number or e-mail through Remote Runner Tracking! For supporters in town, learn more about great spectator spots like the Crystal City Street Spectacular.
The MCM is looking for interesting, inspirational or off-beat stories about participation in the 31st MCM. Tell the MCM why you’re running, about your motivation or just how excited you are to run! Email the MCM
