Good Morning everyone. The week is almost over! I cannot believe we have 20 days left in the school year. Everyone at school – kids and teachers alike- are just done and already in summer mode! This Sunday I am participating in my school’s annual Fun Run 5k race.
Welcome to the Golden Eagle Fun Run 2012 information page!
The purpose of the run is not only to reinforce the importance of daily exercise to the students, but to also raise money to continue to grow our Physical Education Program. A family that exercises together stays healthy together! You will find that exercise is contagious too! If you’re having fun then your friends are going to want to have fun with you!
Our school is raising money to put in a race track!I think this is such a great fundraiser idea and an excellent way to encourage families to exercise together. The amount of companies who have made donations is incredible. The kids are all so excited. 🙂
This will be my first race ever and I am excited and nervous. My goal is to run/walk and finish in under 40 minutes. I know this goal seems slow, but I just recently became able to run a consecutive mile! It is also supposed to be 80 degrees here and I have zero tolerance for the heat.
I need advice.
- What should I eat the night before?
- What should I eat before the race?
- How should I pace myself?
- How should I dress?
- Should I stretch before the race?
Have you ever participated in a 5k or any other type of race? If so, share some details from your first race!
