Summer is here and many residents in our apartments in Blacksburg, VA are looking for ways to get in shape and to lose that college weight. Others are looking at trying their stamina at one of the many races and charity runs in the Blacksburg area this summer. The spring and summer is the time when community races, cancer walks and 5K’s start. Hopefully you are inspired to start running.
If you are interested in running while enjoying the area or if you are interested in running one of these races successfully, it is best to start training at least 8 weeks or more in advance (training time required depends on length of race) to prepare your body. Watch the video below for tips.
