Tips for a Successful Marathon

Any race is exciting. I’ve been in scores of them and my pulse still pounds at the starting line.

But don’t let the excitement get the best of you. A marathon is not a sprint. You’ll be skating for at least an hour. So don’t start so fast that you run out of gas before the finish line.

Skate smart. Stay relaxed. Save as much energy as possible. And learn to recognize — or better yet, create — key moments when maximum effort makes things happen.

Pay attention to what's going on at the front of the paceline. If you see increased arm swing and leg movement, speed up. Don’t wait until a gap forms in front of you. If you do, you'll waste valuable energy catching up.

Also, be aware of what is happening behind you, especially when it involves top skaters in your division. Recognize and react quickly to attacks from behind. An attack by one skater may not be a threat (depending on the skater). But a multiple-skater attack increases the chances of a successful breakaway and could leave you in the dust.

Use the peloton to your advantage.

Remember that a group is faster than a solo skater, if all other factors are ...
