UCAN Gluten Free Waffles & protein ice cream, 10k tomorrow

Happy Friday! I’m racing in a 10k tomorrow & am excited/nervous. I’m not as experienced running & am still finding/establishing pre-race rituals, which can be beneficial for decreasing anxiety & help you perform better.  There are 3 things I’m paying attention to this race so I can see how they fare & either keep or modify for the next one. They are:

  1. Nutrition – what I eat the evening before & also the morning of (yummy recipe below that I hope brings me fast feet!) 
  2. Visualizing– seeing the goal paces/times on my watch 
  3. Pre-race warmup -my coach Susan has one for me to do 

Flat Runner: Here’s what I plan to wear/bring tomorrow (besides the waffle which I just ate):

As far as race day nutrition, I’m not sure if I’ll do Ucan powder or a bar in the morning. I’m leaning to the powder because it’s worked so well for me on my long runs so far. And I’m bringing the shot bloks as a just-in-case gel. 🙂 

What is UCAN? Below pic is a little from their website.  You can read more there: https://store.generationucan.
