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.
The Dandelion Trail Run is a 5 and 10-kilometer entry-level race benefiting Camp Mount Luther. Runners decide on race day if they want to do a 5K or 10K (a double loop of the 5K). All miles are marked, and there’s one water stop on the course. Timing is done electronically. The run was named in memory of the Rev. Glenn Heasley, whose favorite “flower” was the dandelion.
Kids Fun Run! The age groups are 6 and under and 7 – 10. Special awards will be presented to every participant in the fun run.
Again this year! 1 mile fun walk! Same registration fees and amenities apply, or you may just walk without receiving amenities for $10. Walk will be on a dirt road.
