Admittedly, there will be only a few photos in this final instalment of Tour the Course. In keeping with the theme of “leaving stuff out” I’m not showing you the finish line, though it is the same location as the Start line there is something about seeing it as you’re in the final seconds of your race that I didn’t want to take away from you; especially those of you who will be racing for the first time.
On with the photos!
At this point I always pull out my earbuds if I’m listening to music because I want to hear the crowd and the announcers at the Finish line. You’ll be able to hear them from Lorimer Rd as you’re heading toward the Day Lots.
Congratulations! You’re done. You made it. Hopefully meeting the goal of finishing is just the start of the success you feel from this day. Remember to hydrate well, stretch and get something to eat within the first 30 mins after you finish. Take those running shoes off, stretch out on the grass in Whistler Olympic Plaza and relax.
If this course tour wasn’t enough for you, we recently shared on Facebook a complete video time lapse of the course. Here it is, for those of you who want to see the whole thing in one place.
Next week we’re going to talk about all of the fun stuff we have in store for you on race weekend. There are a lot of awesome workshops taking place (I’ll be giving a quick talk on essential oils for runners), carbo load dinner, a FREE organised recovery run that you need to pre-register for, etc. Our amazing race organisers have tried to provide lots of “extras” for your race experience; you’ve come all this way so I hope you get a chance to soak some of that up!
