Tip Of The Day

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.

I Believe (Big Foot) 1M 5K 10K 13.1, 26.2

This October, the Bigfooters are celebrating the 53th anniversary of the Patterson-Gimlin film, a 59.5-second slice of footage they hold up as evidence the cryptids aren't just folklore. It’s named for Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin, a couple of ranchers who rode through Del Norte county, California, on October 20, 1967 looking for Sasquatch footprints, and actually found a live one—or so they believed. Patterson whipped out his 16mm Cine Kodak camera and filmed the hairy, 7-foot-tall creature, back hunched and long arms swinging as it bolted across Bluff Creek. As part of this anniversary, we are hosting our first ever I Believe 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 virtual race. Plus, this medal glows in the dark! We will be donating 15% of every registration to the National Hemophilia Foundation, which is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for inheritable bleeding disorders and to preventing the complications of these disorders through education, advocacy and research. *For a limited time purchase an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE. What: This is a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 virtual run (or walk) to honor of Bigfoot! You choose which distance you want to complete.
