Avoid Skipping Recovery
Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.
The FIRST annual Naked Feet 5k takes place on the beautiful sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The 5K course is entirely in the SAND. It is a nice out and back course that turns around at the jetty by Port Everglades. The ocean breeze will be at your side and the open water there for a cooldown after the event. The beauty of this course is that there is no street to cross no tracks to navigate only a leg strengthening sand!! Come enjoy running in a truly natural environment. Place awards are given only to those who complete the distance un "shod". (shoeless)
It is the first event of this kind in our area embracing the road AND trail running elements in ONE event.
