It won't be long now! January 27th, 2018, the 11th annual running of the Mississippi Blues Marathon will take place in Jackson!
It's a great race with a fun route through Jackson and surrounding neighborhoods. Lookout for those hills in Fondren and Belhaven!!
Chances are, if you're familiar with this race, you signed up months ago and have been training diligently. If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time! You can register here: http://msbluesmarathon.events/race-course/
Whether you are running the 26.2 or the 5k, it's also a great time to stay loose with massage!
But be careful!
It is NOT a good time to make major changes to your running routine. A spot-treatment with deep tissue massage might be helpful well in advance of your race if you are having specific issues, but overall, a relaxing recovery massage a few days after your last long run and during your taper can keep your body loose and get you physically and mentally for race day.
Good luck to all those running! I'll be joining the 10k crowd this year, so be sure to say hi!
