An Important Reason to Buy Your Race Gear Early
Racing to the best your ability is a challenge at the best of times. When things are not going well, it can be awful and the suffering immense. While it’s not always possible to control how you feel, there are certain steps you can take to increase the likelihood that you feel good on race day. Optimising your training and nutrition aside, a very simple step you can take comes in the form of your gear selection. Many runners wait until the last minute to buy new gear or “save it to race day”, thinking it will give them a mental boost. While this can sometimes pay off, a lot of the time it causes unnecessary pain and suffering.
