Austin Sports Medicine: Race Day Tips from Medicine in Motion
Date:1/29/2013

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

When it comes to marathon races or long runs, athletes train extensively for months at a time. But a successful race depends on more than just the ability to run long distances.

The wrong clothes, food or supplies can make a long run seem grueling or even cause a runner to not finish. The following is a list of considerations for runners on the day of their race prepared by the Austin sports medicine doctors at Medicine in Motion. The best athletes always come prepared!

3. Don't overdress. Marathons often start in the cool of early morning, and it's easy to overestimate the amount of clothing needed. As a rule of thumb, it will probably feel 10 or more degrees warmer once racing begins, and temps will rise as the day goes on. Wearing too much clothing gives runners extra weight to carry.

To prevent this, make sure shoes, socks, and clothing have no raised seams that will rub against the skin. Also, use Vaseline, BodyGlide, or something similar in key l
