3. Have a good night’s rest – your energy is your best friend.

4. Indulge in a not-so-big breakfast such as Vegemite on toast and a banana.

5. Make sure you have plenty of time to go to the restroom. You will have a nervy tummy, try to relax as much as possible, it is going to be a fun but big day.

6. Hydrate before the race. You must keep yourself healthy throughout the day, so don’t forget to keep sipping on the water before the race starts.

7. Take gels with you so you don’t go hungry flat, there’s nothing worse than seeing stars before you see the finish line.

8. Use the water stations throughout the course so you can just sip and keep going. Try not to stop, as you will slow down your momentum.

9. If you’re running to your goal pace, find the pacemaker with the time he is running, and stick with him.

10. Most importantly enjoy the day. You’ve done all this training and you’ve finally done it!!!
