In my previous post, I gave some nutrition-related tips to follow leading up to your 70.3 race to result in less than desirable results. Here are a few additional To Do’s to follow on race day that make for horror stories later. Important note: This post is most definitely satirical in content.
I am not one to “kick someone when they’re down”, so don’t get me wrong with the intent of this blog post. But with what I saw (and have seen at several other long course triathlon races) and what I see on social media posts, nutrition and hydration problems continue to be a sore spot for many triathletes.
