The Top 10 Things to do for Kilkee

We could have a very long list ........ But here's a few tidbits

1. Show up 🙂
• a lot of you will be taking on Hell for the first time. No matter your training demons, if you have the work done, you will be fine.

2. Register the day before if possibleunknown(9)

3. Scout transition. Entry and exit points
• race brain is funny to watch in transitions. Don't be the wally

4. Know the weather (chat to a local)
5. Trust your equipment. Bike service?
6. Write out your, actuals, hopes and expectations.
• base on factual training evidence not what ifs

7. Understand your game plan
• no plan no hope

8. Whatever you plan to do on the bike save it for the run !

9. Race like you train
• hmmmmm pot, kettle black 🙂

10. Always finish, take it from a dnf champion. Don't give the brain ammunition

11. Preform a proper warm up !!!
