This is all about being ready for, and handling, those tough moments in your race. Also, what to, and what not to buy before a race.There’s a difference between bad workouts and digging a hole, but how do you deal with a tough day in training? Why does it happen? How can you use it to your advantage? Don’t let your mindset tell you today sucks way too early. We get into making your race “more comfortable,” the smart last minute decisions, and last minute race purchases.
