Tip Of The Day

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.

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.
