The day has finally come! We are just a month away from one of the biggest days of the year in the Richmond running community! What day is it, you ask? We're closing in on the Richmond 8k, Half, and Full Marathon. What an exciting time it is for training! Are you prepared for race day? Keep in mind, it's not too late to get a fresh pair of shoes if yours are nearing that 300-500 mile mark. Also, have you found a nutrition option that works for you?
