Pre-race rituals

I don't have a very extensive list of pre-race rituals, but I do have a few.  These have been on my list ever since high school:

  • get short haircut (even shorter)
  • Shave arms and legs
  • Have a trout for lunch
  • Eat more carbs leading up to the event

With open water swimming I added one more: 
  • prepare a lanoline/vaseline mix for body lubrication.  It helps avoid any chaffing:

What are your pre-race rituals?  Confess!
