You'veworked hard, enjoy everything that is going on around you. It is an amazing experience.

Advice same as what others have said. Start slow. Keep the same routine (clothes, gear, food). Have fun!!!!!

Start slow. Don't bolt out of the gate.

Run your race, not the people's around you.

Run that way ... fast.
No, no, no ... run comfortable. It's supposed to be fun.

Is this your first? Then you will be getting a PR. No doubt about it. Oh, and once you lose your virginity, you cannot get it back ... nor will you want to. (And I am not talking about sex, but it's the same principle.)

Do everything like you've done in training (i.e. same clothes, same foods, etc). Don't start too fast. And have fun!
