Rocky half marathon – Exclusive Positive Race Preparation Workshop – Friday August 11, 9.00am – 12.00pm

This one day workshop focuses on preparing runners for four critical factors that runners have identified as where they need the greatest guidance prior to race day:

  • How to focus on the positive aspects of your preparation and training to race day and how to minimize the impact of negative self talk, and have a positive, great race experience!
  • Review of the race course
  • How to develop a race strategy, including nutrition, hydration, and pacing
  • How to run more efficiently, saving you energy!
  • This exciting workshop takes place on Friday August 11, from 9.00 am to 12.00 pm, in time to reach the expo / packet pick-up. Location is TBA, very close to the expo. Places are limited to 20 runners per race; cost is $40 per person.

Check out this video of Patrice Hubbard on her experience of her Positive Race Workshop at Yellowstone. Patrice talks about the workshop itself, and the effect it had on her race experience for her first half marathon!
