    These were super cool tips and easy to see visually. Not a runner but I will share it with my friends who run. 🙂

    What type of anti-chaffing stick do you recommend?

  3. Thank you ladies for sharing this great infographic–all the best race advice I’ve received condensed into one easy-to-read infographic. And perfect timing. My sister and I are in the final two weeks of training for the Utah Valley 10K. It’s my sister’s first 10K, her longest race to date. I have run this particular race once before and loved it. It’s a beautiful slightly downhill course and a well-run race. I highly recommend it. One piece of advice I might add is get plenty of sleep two nights before the race. For me, at least, my sleep is often fitful the night before with all the nervous energy. It helps to have a little extra in reserve. Thanks again for a great post. I have shared it on social media.

    Awesome article! I especially like the part that says “eat carbs in small amounts” I tend to get weak after a workout but I don’t wan’t to load up on carbs to restore energy for obvious reasons. Can protein replenish energy as well?
