Alright Squad. Hawaii reporting for duty. This is your last run as a whole until the big dance next Sunday. Spend the next week leading to the race, clearing your minds, and staying nice and loose. Don't over exert yourself in any way. Don't run through yellow lights. Wear a helmet. And don't break any hearts this week. You'll need to wear them on your sleeves for 21.1km and 42.2km.

There will be an early carb load Korean dinner the Saturday night before the race, so feel free to join and bring your loved ones.

A few quick notes since we've gone over this a number of times:

- Talk to your Scotia pacer at the expo if you're using one. They may have different race strategies than you, sometimes going for negative or positive splits.

- Wear a throwaway shirt, robe, towel, outfit for the wait in the corral

- Carb load starting Thursday. Your body does max out in glycogen stores, so you don't need to eat every pizza. Just eat smart.

- Hydrate early as well. Drink electrolyte drinks and plenty of water.

- Sleep well by Thursday / Friday. Nobody sleeps well the night before the race. You will see people on the course who haven't slept at all.

- Temperature looks to be 14-16 degrees

Most of all, enjoy this race. You've all worked incredibly hard for it, and you're all exceeding expectations. Enjoy that sweet last 400 meter dash up Bay street.
