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.
All proceeds from the Nancy Carner Memorial 5K For Hope are donated to the Venango Relay For Life via the Chamor Cancer Cickers Relay For Life team. The event is a 3.1 mile loop along the scenic Allegheny River on the Samuel Justus Recreation Trail, starting on the Franklin side off US 322. The surface is paved asphalt and mostly flat. We will have plenty of fundraisers - raffles, t-shirt sales, etc. so bring your cash and be ready to mix it up with our DJ Abbigale Flowers!
