Marathoneering Tips From ISPA

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

As many of you are preparing for the New York Marathon our international ISPA  professionals offer some race day tips:

If you start to feel over exertion: Change your pace slow to your race pace, then slow down until your comfortable again. (This is not a walk/run scheme.)

Believe it or not my Kenyan friends and colleagues advocate, ready, SMILE. Remember your are running for fun. Force yourself to smile. Look at someone in the crowd lining the race, smile at them, yell a cheer, or make a funny face. This is what they are telling me!

Also when you are feeling the old ‘wall’ being reached. Concentrate on your running form. Look deep into your body’s movements and think form, form, form.

At the International Sports Professionals Association (ISPA) we have professionals from all over the world to help you and your clients enjoy sports safely and with integrity.
