Running Routes – 3/15

SPRING FIT Trail/LAB + Parker…

SATURDAY 

All participants need to arrive at TxDOT ready to roll no later than 7:00 AM. There will be routes printed but please bring a plastic bag to carry your directions. We have fewer coaches leading groups this season so it is VERY important for everyone to have directions with them. Each one also has my cell phone printed on them in case of an emergency (need to be picked up or get lost). There is water and Gatorade out on the course so look for a cooler when indicated on the route. If you are running or walking longer than 90 minutes – please bring other forms of nutrition (gu’s, shot blocks, beans, salt pills, etc.) and carry a water bottle.  Upon returning to TxDOT we have water and Gatorade for you. Coaches will lead stretches and Jen will take people through core strengthen and hip exercises. Please bring a towel and/or yoga mat for this. We will announce the group breakfast location in the morning and any other important announcements before the workout.
