Tip Of The Day

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.

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.
