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.

Champions for Children 5k

Join us at Great Meadow Foundation for the Champions for Children 5K. The proceeds will benefit foster children in Fauquier County. Children in foster care are separated from everything they have ever known and made to be part of a family they have never met before. Foster families are expected to treat these children as their own and support them returning to their birth families. Often times children and youth in foster care are not afforded the same opportunities as peers their age. Extracurricular activities such as: sports, prom, homecoming, yearbooks, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, and graduation expenses are not covered by local, state, or federal funding. Though their basic needs are provided for through a foster care stipend, it is minimal. With your support, the foster children and youth will be afforded the same opportunities as their peers.
