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.
Come celebrate the Fourth of July Holiday with some fitness...by running the patriotic, family friendly Freedom Fighter 5K and Kids Dash!
We want to give as many dollars as we can from this event into Boot Campaign! Rather than including a participant shirt with registration we ask you to do one of the following: purchase one in the online store, pick one up at registration or snag one at the start of the run. To ensure you get the Boot Campaign shirt of your liking, we encourage you to place your order ahead of time at Shop.BootCampaign.org as shirts may be limited on race day. Be sure to select Freedom Fighter 5K at checkout so we know you ordered!
Will we still be offering finisher medals and a free kids dash? Absloutely. All the post race fun at Bergfeld Park? You betcha. We want to encourage our community to give to Boot Campaign in celebration of the freedoms we enjoy!
