|OK, so what happens now?
Summer is over. You trained, followed the program, ran your races, and now it's September and the weather
is cooling off. Should you make like a bear and hibernate until Spring? NO!
A New End. A New Beginning.
The summer training program was just a launching pad. You've done the hardest
part and now it's time to reap those benefits. Now that you're toned and
trained, you're all set to enjoy some of the best running opportunities.
of the mild temperatures, Sept-Oct. is the peak race season in this area. Just
glance at the SFTC Calendar and you'll find
gems like the Apple Festival 4 Miler, the Pink Ribbon 5K, the Roan Mtn 10K, and the Santa Special
Mile. The schedule slows down as cold weather creeps in. But you can still try
the War Party 10K or the Surgoinsville 10 Miler in February.
Even if you don't
race, be sure to volunteer at some of these events. Staying surrounded by your
running kin will keep you focused on your running and inspire you to
continue your healthy habit year-round.
