Okay, let’s start with the very, very obvious: I don’t run. Sports were a very big part of my life growing up, and despite all of the things I did love about them, I also had nightmares about pre-season soccer and lacrosse, mostly centered around the impending doom of our timed long-distance runs. The equipment back then was not the best either, luckily now, teams are able to get good quality sports equipment like lacrosse sticks and baseball bats.
That being said, Philadelphia is a running city. My friends are a nice little active bunch, and those non-runners in our group (it is getting smaller and smaller each race!) typically get out the door nice and early to cheer our crew on along the course. So after many races viewed and one big one on the horizon (aka tomorrow), I thought I would offer some of my top tips for navigating the race watching scene. 🙂
