don't wear shoes/socks that you've not worn before (I wore different socks with my race shoes once; they kept creeping down my heels. Fortunately I had another pair of the old style with me)
move around pre-race. My favorite pre-race routine is 10 leg swings side to side & 10 leg swings front to back (on each leg), and some walking lunges.
if you have any 'leakage' issues - be prepared. Nothing more embarrassing than 'kicking it' toward the finish line and having your bladder want to let go!
you have a couple of days, so experiment a bit with what's comfortable to wear in your current weather at the time of day for the race. Right now for me, it's running pants and a long sleeved t-shirt.
if you listen to music when you run, set up a good play list.
be save & have FUN!
