Tip #3 Stretch, Stretch, Stretch
The pace of the race follows this pattern: Run a few miles and immediately jump in the van to head to the next transition. Ask your team for five minutes before hopping in the van to stretch. Once you make it to the next transition, get outside and roll out your muscles.
Sitting in a van for long periods of time will create stiffness. Add in 4, 7 or 13 miles of running, and you're bound to hurt yourself. So stretch and foam roll to prevent injuries.
Tip #4 Have Fun
