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.
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.
