Great first day of racing in a very CRAZY environment
Frosh DMR sets a Woody Team Record to start the season!!
Since we are boarding the bus at 2:30 and you are not racing until 5pm, you need to have food for fuel!!
The usuall recomendation is that you pack a sandwich or two cut in fourths. You want to eat a quarter before your warm-up and then a quarter after your first race. Then you still have a half to eat after your last event.
My recomendation is a plain ham sandwich with no dressing on it. You get protien, salt and fuel from this. Also, make sure you have water or some sort of liquid with you to hydrate
