Join as we kick off season 3 with one of our favorite topics: sleep! Tune in as we share our favorite wines and top tips on how to sleep better before a big race.
2020 is in full swing, and with it comes an all new season of the Runners Who Wine Podcast! Annmarie and I are pumped to be back with a new season. We have a lot of great episode topics lined up, but we’re kicking things off with something everyone loves: sleep!
I used to have the hardest time falling asleep. Whether I was thinking about with all the things I’d have to do, how I just couldn’t get comfortable, how stressed out I was about the fact that I wasn’t sleeping and now only have 6 hours, 5 hours, 4 hours to get reach slumberland. If it was the night before a big race my mind would race (pun intended) even more. Did I set my alarm? Wait… does the race start at 6, not 7? What if I forget my socks? What if there’s traffic and I miss the start line? BAH!
Stress and anxiety are the biggest sleep-suckers, but over the years I’ve learned how to reduce them (moving to Austin helped big time) and have started to get better and better sleep. While I’ve learned to reduce stress and anxiety in my every day life, I’d be lying if I I’m totally stress-free before a big race. I still get the pre-race jitters. I still worry I’ll miss my alarm. However, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help myself unwind, destress and get a good night’s sleep before I toe that starting line, and my kick-ass co-host, Annmarie, and I are here to share them all with you in the latest episode of the Runners Who Wine Podcast.
