5 Tips For A Sucessful Marathon from NJ Shore Ma 5 Tips For A Sucessful Marathon from NJ Shore Ma October 30, 2014 5 Tips For A Successful Marathon There is a definite learning curve in the marathon. Tips and tricks are passed on from coach to runner, from veterans to first-timers. A successful race is the result of managing many small tasks. By planning ahead, you can make your marathon experience a whole lot smoother..

Practice___.

_ Practice everything! In your long runs leading up to the marathon, you should try the shoes, apparel, breakfast, drink and/or gel that you think you will use on race day. It’s better to discover if something doesn’t work on a long run than during the marathon. Check the race website in advance to find out what fluids will be available on course. You can choose whether to supplement with the fuel on course or carry a different product of your choice..

Goals.

Experienced runners should have a goal time, but have some flexibility in that goal for dealing with weather and other factors on race-day. I like having a primary goal and a stretch goal, but it’s also good to have a slower time in mind that may you’ll be OK with if weather forces a slower pace. Just finishing 26.2 is a huge accomplishment, even if you have to adjust your goal time. I encourage new runners to focus on finishing their first marathon, rather than on hitting a specific time. There should be lots of entertainment to enjoy along the course, and running a solid, fun first marathon will set you up well for a more specific goal at your next race! Soak up the energy of the race, but start conservatively so you can have fun during the second half. The last 6 miles feel as hard as the first 20, so you should plan to save plenty of energy for the final miles..

Pacing.

Many runners get caught up in the excitement of the marathon and start out too fast. The early miles always feel easy, but any time “banked” is often given back later. It’s always easier to make up time if you start a little slow than to recover from starting too fast. Don’t get caught up in someone else’s pace. Even among runners with the same goal time, you may find that one runner is stronger running uphill, while another is stronger on downhill or flat segments. This can cause an awkward feeling of surges throughout the race, which is more difficult than maintaining the pace that is right for YOU. If you want to run with a pace group, allow yourself the option of pulling slightly ahead or even dropping a little behind during segments where the pace doesn’t feel quite right. Remember that pacers run a steady pace for 26.2, which might not mean a steady effort over hills..

Layers.

If you’re expecting cool weather at the start, add some layers that you can pull off mid-race if you warm up or if the fabric rubs you wrong. You can cut the toes off of some tube socks to make arm-warmers, and if needed, wear some “throw-away” gloves and a hat that you can toss as you warm up. Hydration Drinking too much plain water before and during the race can be a serious problem. It can throw off your electrolyte balance, causing a risk of hyponatremia (low sodium concentration). Runners are at a greater risk of hyponatremia if they take water at all aid stations and don’t consume adequate electrolytes to maintain sodium balance. To prevent hyponatremia, you should consume electrolytes with some of your water in the days before the marathon and during the race. You can mix in an electrolyte drink or eat whole foods containing electrolytes. Leading up to race-day, good electrolyte sources include bananas & avocado for potassium, dairy products (if you tolerate them) and green leafy vegetables for calcium, and chicken broth or other salty foods for sodium. On race morning you’ll want to stick with lighter foods for breakfast, mixing carbs & protein. My favorite pre-race meal is a banana with mixed nuts. Eaten 2-3 hours before the race, it provides sodium and potassium, along with carbs, and some protein & healthy fat..

A marathon is a lot to manage. Make a plan, but allow some flexibility if things don’t go exactly right. We look forward to seeing you at the finish line!.

November 8, 2014  New Jersey Trail Series November 8, 2014 New Jersey Trail Series November 15,2014 New Jersey Trail Series and one day Marathon Augusta, NJ USA Official Race Website: http://www.njtrailseries.com/oneday LAP COUNTING: Laps will be tracked for each runner using Jaguar timing & scoring system. As each runner crosses under the tower to mark a “split,” the system will record it. Since the tower will be passed each time the runner circles the course, each split is thus equal to one lap. One word of caution regarding the counting of laps; Only completed laps will count towards your overall total mileage. Pacers: This is a very runnable course and pacers will not be allowed. You would have to work hard to get lost and in the spirit of competition try to do your best on your own efforts. Any two or more registered runners though can run together as much as they desire. This is true no matter which race you are entered, all runners will be using the same course. NJ

Muddy Marathon & Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, Muddy Marathon & Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, Marathon Details: Muddy Marathon & Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, Marathon Relay, 10K Fun Run Vernon, NJ USA April 20, 2013 Each event will be more about the time on the trails and good time after the race (cold refreshments are served), not so much about your time on the clock. These will not be PR courses. Life is not measured in time. Life is measured in family, friends, smiles, miles, and beer. Come out to a NJ Trail Series event if you enjoy fun, getting out for some exercise and meeting new friends. Official Race Website: http://www.njtrailseries.com The new venue for 2013 is not decided yet. Keep in touch for the new venue coming. This is NOT a trail race for beginning trail runners. This can barely be considered a trail race. It is an adventure. This is an experience of fun and to try something new. You will not actually do much "running" but a lot of walking. Walkers WILL NOT finish the course in under 90 minutes / loop. Most "runners" will not finish in under 90 minutes per loop. Please do not enter if the idea of a DNF frightens you. If you enter the marathon you have a 90.5% chance of getting a DNF (based on 2010 results). New Information for anyone that has entered before: With the new location the course will be very different from previous years. It will still be a fun adventure and a challenge, just different. NJ

Where: Start and Finish at the Loop by the Playground. map Entry fee: $25 - I know this has been a Fat Ass style run in the past but due to increased awareness by the park and authorities there are now significant costs to putting on this event. In order to cover the costs of the permits, insurance there is a nominal cost of $25 per runner. This is also in hopes to limit the number of people that sign up taking a spot from some one else and then never show up to run. NO SHIRTS, NO AWARDS ONLINE REGISTRATION Online Registration closes the Wednesday before the race. You will be able to register the day of the race (cash). Limit: Parking spots. parking will be along W R Tracy Drive around the Loop. You will not pass your car while running. You will be allowed to go to your car or bring out a cooler to place near the race course. Please consider trying to bring A DONATION FOR UNITED WAY or a volunteer to help out. To volunteer you can also send an email to NJ Trail Series. Hours volunteered can be used in your service requirement for other ultras. Notes from practice loops (from 2010): The ground was very icy from the cold weather we have had lately. The western half is hillier and has more single track, the eastern part is flatter with wider paths and almost all bridle paths. The horse stables are on the eastern half of the reservation so this makes perfect sense. NJ
