Seven Common Race-Day Mistakes Made by Runners from Medicine in Motion
Date:4/11/2013

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

Runners often train for months leading up to a marathon or big race. Long distance runs affect the body in many (and sometimes unexpected) ways, and even minor mistakes can lead to disappointing results.

3. Overdressing. Since races typically start in the morning hours when it's cooler, runners often dress more warmly than necessary. It's important to remember that once the race begins, body temperatures will rise, so it will feel at least 10 degrees warmer than the actual temperature. Extra clothing leads to sweating and dehydration, and can be generally uncomfortable.

Even if a racer is used to a certain type of food, if they haven't previously run on it, it may have an adverse affect on their performance.

5. Warm-up extremes. When it comes to getting the b
