While we should be drinking roughly half of our body weight in ounces of water ever day (for example, a 140-pound person should drink 60 ounces of H2O each day), it’s especially crucial four days prior to a race. Each day after that, add 10 additional ounces per day. That means one day before your race, you’ll be drinking half your body weight plus 30 additional ounces of water.
On race day, drink normally until one hour before your start time. If you’ve properly hydrated, the water you drink an hour before the race should go right through you and be straw-colored to clear(ish).
