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.
Our much loved friend and Coach, Jason Kilderry, lost his battle with cancer on December 18, 2017. Jason’s zest for life and adventurous spirit will continue to live on through his greatest legacy, his son Finn. Those of us who followed Jason on Facebook loved his weekly postings about his escapades with Finn - #FINNFRIDAY
In keeping with Jason's tradition to make Finn the center of attention on Friday, we have organized #FINNFRIDAY 5K to raise funds for Finn's education (particularly the most immediate need which is his preschool tuition). The first Annual #FINNFRIDAY 5K will take place on a scenic 10-foot-wide, asphalt-paved trail in the heart of Glassboro, NJ. The route is a fast, flat out and back. A one mile fun run will also be offered for children 12 and under. An after party at Landmark Americana will immediately follow the race.
Rain or Shine! No refunds.
