Find your focus

You may find it helpful to remind yourself why you’re running a race: to finish, to hit a certain time, to raise money for charity. When you are in the midst of the event, you can get overloaded and stressed by lots of things and forget why you chose to do the event in the first place. 

Remember why you’re there and what you want out of it, so you can maximise your opportunities and not leave achieving your goal to chance.
