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.
The 6th Annual Joshua 1:9 Freedom Run / Walk is being held to generate awareness and support for Christians who are persecuted every day – just for their faith. Our goal is to help raise awareness about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Africa. Last year we raised $5,700 from the run and 100% of the funds went directly to Persecuted Christians living in refugee camps.
In the spirit of this mission, we invite you to run, walk, or stroll with us on Saturday, November 17th at 8am!
You can run, walk, stroll or observe race day! Or virtually participate and we will mail you a bib and race day t-shirt!
We will have a 5K Run/Walk and a 1M Fun Run/Walk.
7AM - Same Day Registration and Packet Pickup.
8AM - 5K Chipped Run starts
9:00 - 1M Fun Run / walk starts
10:00 - Awards
Continued Fellowship and music through morning!
Where will the funds go? Our mission is to help those who are persecuted for their Christian faith, especially in the Middle East and Africa. Proceeds for this year’s run are going directly to families and children who are homeless and living in refugee camps in Iraq.
This is a unique opportunity to support those in desperate need locally or virtually through a fun activity!
