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.
Join Team RWB Phoenix and StartLine Racing as we host the 6th Annual Veterans Day 5K, 10K, and 1 Mile run/walk on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at Kiwanis Park.
Whether you are a competitive runner looking for a new PR on this fast, flat course, or you are ready to run your first event, or just looking for a fun, family activity on a beautiful Saturday morning, all ages and ability levels are welcome!
A Portion of the proceeds will go directly to Team Red, White and Blue. Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
Can't make it to this year's event but still want to participate? This year will feature a Veterans Day Run Virtual Race. A virtual race is a race that can be ran at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race at your pace wherever you like. All virtual race participants will receive a custom event finisher's medal and custom event dri-fit tech t-shirt.
