Have you registered to join Team Komen at this year’s OC Marathon and Half Marathon? If not, there’s still time to join! In true Komen fashion, we wanted to share tips and tricks for getting in shape for the marathon.
Marathon enthusiast Doug McKay, our 2015 Race for the Cure committee chair, is leading a free training group which meets every Saturday at 7 a.m. for all Team Komen members.
We invite you to participate in this training alongside other Team Komen. You’ll learn about personal health and training essentials, while building friendships with those who want to make a lasting difference in the breast cancer community.
If you go, don’t forget the essentials:
- Plenty of fluids – water, sports drink, etc.
- Comfortable clothing and shoes
- A watch to time your pace
- A running diary to manage your overall progress
- Sun protection – sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, etc.
Selecting varying surfaces you train on can have a huge impact on injury prevention – that’s why we change up our training location every week.
If you are interested in joining us and being a part of Team Komen, please contact Julie Guevara at 714-957-9157 ext. 30 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
