Races on Saturdays are fun now. The warm weather, the several months of training have put you in good shape. Stay relaxed in your big events. Know that being nervous is okay, but use it as a benefit. Stay focused, think about where you want to make your move in a race prior to the race. Visualize yourself (check out this piece from Mike Spino) being successful. Good luck this weekend!
