If you are soon running (or have just run) a Fall marathon, you have trained hard and tapered carefully for the race. In order to stay healthy and injury-free, it is equally important for you to follow a good plan for recovery on race day and in the days and weeks following your race:
Marathon Day Post-Race Activities:
Get your Finisher Photo Taken! You will want the finished photo as a keepsake later so take the time to wait in line and get this photo taken, even if you feel like you are just too tired.
Keep moving immediately after the race. Keep walking slowly and/or keep standing and moving, even in line for the race photo! You definitely don’t want to sit down and run the risk of cramping or tightening up to the point where you can’t stand up or walk.
