Setting a race on the calendar and basing your training on reaching it in good condition is a unique experience. Not only will you enjoy the race, but at the end, when you cross the finish line, you will value all the ways and the training that has led you to complete it. You will be proud of what you have achieved and you will be eager to keep on improving yourself.
