I’m kinda embarrassed to ask this question, but it’s something that I need to know and I’m pretty sure that the information can help others as well. I pee a LOT right before a race…maybe more than any other human :-) What can I do to avoid this so I can make my pre-race morning more enjoyable?
Thanks in advance for the info.
Embrace the pee, there really isn’t much that you can do to avoid this biological necessity. You can, however, take some steps to make your pre-race morning more enjoyable. First, wake up earlier than you normally would so you can, uh, take care of business more in your hotel room or house. This will help you avoid the stress inducing porta potty lines that resemble movie theater lines on the opening night of a Harry Potter flick. Second, replace your morning coffee with a caffeinated gel (ha…and you thought I was going to be one of those coaches that told you to stop drinking coffee…those coaches need to be excommunicated from the human race.) Third, get to the race site EARLY so you can relax and enjoy the pre-race energy and vibe. Take in all of that energy and use it to get you across that finish line (wow, I really do sound like I’m from Sedona). Finally, don’t fight the pee...it means that you’re well hydrated, and that’s a VERY good thing.
