CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- The Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon is just days away, so runners are making sure their bodies are ready for the race. For most, the tough training days are over, but you still need to keep a few things in mind.

Make sure to get good nights' sleep this week. Also, eat things which won't sit in your gut. Stay away from a lot of fiber or red meat. Make sure to have a good plan on running day to stay hydrated and alert.

Dr. Abraham Kocheril, a cardiac electrophysiologist, will join us for live coverage of the marathon Saturday. WCIA-3's Extra Mile Special starts Friday night during the 5K and ends 10 am, Saturday.
