Mentally prepare for your next race
If you’re planning to run a race, chances are you’re probably planning to train for it too. You’ll do long runs and speed work. Maybe you’ll hit the gym. You might hire a coach, who will give you workouts to get you physically ready for the big day. But what will you do to prepare mentally?
Here are some tips from Competitor.com, to help you put mind over matter.
- Be present.
Stay focused on the moment. Concentrate on the smaller aspects of your run – your form, your breathing, your footfall.
- Push through mental fatigue.
Brain training away from the exercise arena (think problem solving or puzzles) can lead to mental stamina and endurance during your runs.
- Practice makes perfect.
Treat your training runs as practice and race day like ‘showtime’. Utilize positive self-talk and keep doing it ’til you believe it!
Want more? Read the full article here.
Now that you’ve got your brain into gear, make sure you’ve signed up for Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly – then all you’ll need to occupy your brain with is whether to dress in costume or not!

Power Crunch, the Einstein of Protein, is an innovative line of great-tasting protein bars, powders and ready-to-drink shakes that fuel one’s everyday pursuits and eliminates the guesswork in healthy eating. Each of its products come in a variety of flavors and include up to 20 grams of soy-free protein and five grams of sugar (or less), per serving. Power Crunch is proud to be the official bar sponsor of the Carlsbad 5000 race and encourages everyone to try the delicious bars and drinks during this weekend’s event at booth #111.

Power Crunch’s product line utilizes a highly advanced hydrolyzed whey protein called Proto Whey® that delivers “protein super-nutrition” and supports consumers’ bodies more effectively than any other source of protein on the market.

Proto Whey is created by breaking down normal whey protein to the smallest protein molecules called di and tri peptides. These protein molecules are absorbed more rapidly and completely by the body, so Power Crunch is the perfect fuel for a pre- or post-race boost. Consumers utilize all of the protein within the bars and receive the greatest nutritional benefit.

Whether you’re an elite runner in search of the perfect training supplement, an active mom in need of a healthy snack, or just a fitness enthusiast looking for the ideal source of daily protein, Power Crunch provides smart protein with great taste and texture. Power Crunch is available on shelves at top U.S. retailers, such as Trader Joe’s, WalMart, Vitamin Shoppe, Safeway, Publix and Ralph’s. The line of Power Crunch products include:

  • Original Bars (up to 14 grams of protein)—one of the nation’s top-selling protein bars, these light, crème-filled wafer cookie protein bars provide energy without weighing the body down. Flavors include Peanut Butter Fudge, Triple Chocolate, Peanut Butter Crème and French Vanilla Crème, Cookies & Crème, Wild Berry Crème and Chocolate Mint, with new flavors coming soon
  • Crisp Bars (up to 14 grams of protein)— these airy, crisp treats combine scientifically advanced nutrition with great flavor to offer consumers a gluten-free solution. Flavors include Chocolate Brownie Wonder and Sweet Vanilla Dream, with new flavors coming soon
  • Choklat Bars (up to 10 grams of protein)—available in both milk and dark chocolate, Power Crunch Choklat combines crunchy crisps of smart protein with the unparalleled taste of chocolate to make the perfect snack for the health-conscious chocolate lover
  • Blast Shakes (20 grams of protein)—creamy, refreshing protein drinks for consumption anytime, anywhere. Flavors include Double Chocolate and Vanilla Crème
  • Proto Whey Protein Powders (20 grams of protein)— a delicious mix of healthy nutritional science and a variety of tasty flavors, including Vanilla Crème, Double Chocolate, Cookies & Crème and Café Mocha

Forsyth Park

Home to our Finish Line and Finish Line Festival, this 30-acre park is home to a cast iron fountain that was erected in 1858. The Forsyth Park Fountain was designed to resemble the grand fountain in Paris at the Place de la Concorde. A trip to Savannah isn’t complete without a visit to the fountain!
