Today: Try to get an extra hour in bed. Read your race day instructions. Go for a light jog.
Saturday: Lay your kit out and pin on the number. Smile to yourself. Eat and drink well but don't overdo it.
Sunday: Get up 30 minutes earlier than you think you should. Have a great breakfast but don't go crazy. There is no need to overeat. Relax at the start. Don't overdress - dress for halfway and further.

Be patient at the start. Focus on running your mile splits as relaxed and comfortably as possible. You should feel easy for the first half – your race really starts in the second half. It's normal to experience a few low spells. If you do, stay positive and keep moving forwards. Break the race up into manageable chunks: 0 - 3 miles – get into your stride and rhythm; 4 - 6miles – settle into your pace and stay consistent and smooth; 7 - 9 miles – stay on top of your effort, concentrate and maintain form; 10 - 13.1 miles – Never give up. Run strong to the finish.
After the race, put a warm top on, walk a little bit, get some food and drink – refuel and rehydrate. Walk around wearing your medal with pride. Celebrate and enjoy.
