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.
Diamond Minds Transformational Leadership Academy and Early Beginnings Academy invite you to the 2nd Annual Legacy 5K Run & Walk at the beautiful Bill Baggs State Park as we celebrate Earth Day by sharing time and experiencing nature with family and friends.
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park offers the best views of Key Biscayne. This ideal run venue will captivate your imagination and inspire your feet. Our Earth Day family event begins near the pier and winds through a butterfly garden, nature paths, boat docks, and the Cape Florida Lighthouse. Festive post-race activities begin at 9:00 am offering families and participants an opportunity to explore outdoor adventures including fishing, swimming, kayaking, and beach yoga. Your registration packet includes a finisher medal, refreshments, and access to our Oceanfront Gathering.
Children under the ages of 2 are free. All proceeds from the Legacy 5K benefit educational programs for United Community Options which operates programs throughout Miami-Dade County dedicated to ensuring that each child receives a holistic education which nurtures their physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Participants should arrive at the entrance to Bill Baggs State Park by 6:30 am. Park entry fees are waived for participants. Once inside follow the signs to the parking lot near the lighthouse entrance and walk toward the pavilions near the pier (D14 & D18). Registration begins at 6:15 am and the race begins promptly at 7:30 am.
