Five Days to Chicago Marathon-Don’t Change Your Training or Routine

AnkleNFootCenters confirm “only 5 days until the 2014 Chicago Marathon!”

October in Chicago is an exciting month as thousands of runners converge on Chicago for 26.2 mile tour of this beautiful city. Racing though 29 neighborhoods with some of the most breath-taking architecture, diverse cultures and over 1.7 million spectators.

You have trained hard for the past 12-16 weeks. Trust in your training. Don’t make any new changes leading up to the Marathon. A change in shoes, socks, or even gels can cause some unexpected irritation on race day, making it difficult to finish. Rest prior to race day and stay hydrated to conserve energy.

Unfortunately, injuries still happen. I will be at the finish line to help, in case you need it. Come find me at the Jackson tent
Have fun, and be safe,
