There’s only 23 days remaining until you crush the course and complete one of the best half marathons in Northeast Ohio! Be sure to check your schedule to make sure you’re getting in your mid-week runs for conditioning and feeling out your proper pace, and using the once-per-week long runs to get you mentally prepared for running 13.1 miles.
Don’t over-do-it. Take your days off to allow your joints and muscles adequate time to rest. And on your weekend long runs, make sure to bring plenty of water to drink after your run and during your run. It’s important especially when your long runs start reaching distances of seven, eight and nine miles or longer, to have water at the mid-point of your long run as well as at the end.
If you do happen to need any assistance at the finish line race morning, our friends from the Chamberlain College of Nursing will be on site to assist. And if you’re an aspiring nurse looking to launch a rewarding career, or a nurse advancer building on professional nursing experience, Chamberlain offers the degree programs and options, resources and support to help you succeed.
