Top 10 Ways to Prepare for the Corporate Challenge

You signed up for the Corporate Challenge…. Now what!?

Top 10 Things to Do

10. Invest in a new pair of running shoes - running shoes typically last about 6 months

9. Write down a goal for the race - for example, finish time, don’t walk, have fun, high five spectators

8. Foam roll - most gyms have foam rollers, if not it’s $10 on Amazon..happy muscles = better running

7. Sleep more - our bodies recover from hard work while we sleep

6. Hydrate - drink water alone or with electrolytes often throughout day especially if you are drinking coffee and/or alcohol

5. Go for a run in the evening - the race is a 7pm or later start, acclimate to evening conditions

4. Practice fueling before a run so you know what to eat pre race - usually bland items, simple carbs

3. Look at a course map so you know where to expect ascents, descents, and flat terrain

2. Find a buddy to train with

1. Enjoy the process - exercise is fun! And even more satisfying when you achieve a goal!
