How to Select Goal Races


When we are picking our goal races for the year, we want to think about putting ourselves in the BEST possible position to see what we are capable of 💯


👇Consider the following to ensure your goal race will set YOU up for success:👇


A race in August versus a race in November will yield VERY different temperatures anywhere in the U.S. Shoot for goal races in the Fall and Spring for optimal running conditions! ⛅️Experts say the ideal running temperatures for the human body are 45-50 degrees for long distance races


It’s no secret that running on hills slows you down, though some runners do thrive on smaller rolling hills versus a completely flat course. Know what type of course suits you best! 🏔


Do you love having spectators cheer you on, or does all the commotion of a big race stress you out? Figure out what environment you run your best in! 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦


Some runners LOVE runcations while others prefer to stay close to home for races. Plan to run races that make the most sense for you and your situation! ✈️


Are you the type of runner who is motivated and pushed by other runners around you, or can you thrive out on your own during a race? Figure out your ideal racing scenario 🏃‍♀️🏃🏃‍♂️
