Plan Ahead

You’ll need to get a good meal and plenty of sleep the night before, so make sure you’ve already planned how accomplish these so you’ll be ready to go in the morning. And be sure to check out the minor changes made to the course this year. Also, make sure you’re familiar with where you’ll be parking and the route you’ll take to avoid traffic on the morning of the marathon.
