|Subject: ||RE: Drinking Coffee Before a Race|
I used to never drink coffee but now I have started using it before my races. It seems to have a very good effect. I think doctors recommend no more than 300mg before a serious physical event like a race. That's about one cup of coffee. Don't go overboard. It can increase your risk of a cardiac event, especially when coupled with dehydration. If you're in good shape then go for it.
