With Vic Fall marathon coming next week Sunday we thought we would ask Coach Nick his pre-race secret. 🀩

What is your pre-race secret? 
"My secret.. Are you ready.. Okay here it is! I have a race song for every race I run. I’ll listen to this in the build up to the race as well as on race day. It helps me mentally set and prepare for what’s to come." - Nick Bester
