Tip Of The Day

Build a Foundation

Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.

To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.

Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.

K9s United 5k/Mile Fun Run/Virtual 5k

Join K9s United on Saturday, April 14th. 2018 in the Nocatee Community for the K9s United 9K for K9s. This annual event will include the 1 mile fun run (untimed), the classic 5k and new for 2018, the challenging 9k! If you choose to run the 9k, you not only get bigger, but double the BLING. Both the 5k and 9k will be chip timed with awards for the top runners in each category. All the runs are open to runners and walkers of all levels. Can't make it out on race day, that's okay...we are offering a "NO EXCUSE" Virtual 5k or 9k options, so you can still be part of the fun, earn a T-shirt and medal, all the while supporting a great cause. Last year we had 13 states represented. This year we want to see all 50 get into the fun.

In addition to the race there will be amazing post-race activities for the whole family including kids art arts and crafts, a K-9 photo booth to get your picture taken with your favorite K9 Hero, and everyone’s favorite, a K-9 demonstration that will be bigger and better than ever.

RUN FOR FREE! If you raise $100 or more though our fundraising portal, you get to run in the race of your choice for free! This is a great way to support our K9 Heroes and receive a great reward yourself. 

100% of the proceeds will benefit K-9s United an organization that is committed to supporting and honoring K-9 law enforcement officers who detect, protect and serve our communities by giving them the best equipment, amenities, and quality of life during and after their service, and memorializing those who give the ultimate sacrifice.
