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.

Race the Reserve

Filled with historic buildings, forests and awe-inspiring views of the Olympic Mountains, the 10th annual Race the Reserve Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, 10k and 5k will be held Saturday, August 8, 2020. Organized by the Coupeville High School Class of 2021 parents, the event is a fundraiser for a safe and sober 2021 graduation night celebration and graduation week activities. The race is set to take runners through the national parkland area known as the Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. Runners will start and finish the loop courses for the races at the Coupeville Elementary School track (Mickey Clark Field), 6 S. Main St., Coupeville. There are four different routes. The 5k will loop around the north end of Ebey’s Landing. The 10k begins with the same route as the 5k, but extends the loop around the prairie and coastal bluffs, passing historical farms along the way. The Half Marathon extends the 10k loop, going through Camp Casey, Fort Casey and the cooling trees of Rhododendron County Park. The Marathon/Relay extends from the Half Marathon route and takes you through the Kettles Trails, across the prairie on the Pratt Loop, behind the landing strip at Outlying Field and down Hill Road where you will have amazing views of Admirality Inlet. Event day registration and check-in begins at 5:30am. The scheduled starting time for the race is 7:00am for the Marathon/Relay, 7:30am for the Half Marathon and 8:00am for the 10k/5k.
