Whether the 2013 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon is your first race or your 50th, you’re likely going to have at least a few training questions leading up to it.

What should I eat for peak performance during training? What’s the best way to hydrate before a race? I haven’t been consistent with training since my last marathon … Should I start slow?

If any of these sound familiar to you, or if you have other questions about training, mark your calendars now: Join us next Wednesday, July 31, from 12-1 pm for a live Facebook Q&A with 2004 Olympian Kate O’Neill Tenforde.

Kate represented the US in Athens, finished 3rd in the 2007 Chicago Marathon, won the 2008 U.S. Half Marathon Championship and made the 2004 U.S. World Cross Country team. Now, she’s working with our official training partner, runcoach, and she’s joining us to answer your questions and offer her expert training advice.
