Race Day Preparation Checklist

This weekend, I’ll be running my 9th half marathon. I’m running the Hotlanta Half Marathon and using it as a training run for the Walt Disney World Marathon training. It will be a great training run with the hills that downtown Atlanta offers. I will definitely be challenged by the Hotlanta Half, but I’m looking forward to it!

Sometimes race nerves can get the best of you and make you forgetful. By using the same list each race, you can be confident you’ll have everything you need for race day.
