POP UP STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
Another opportunity for a dose of Joe’s strength and conditioning for distance running is this WEDNESDAY MAY 3 at 7:30pm at the GAP entrance to Prospect Park at the bike racks. We will be doing some things on the ground so bring gloves if you want.
Joe, a former personal trainer and Crossfit Coach, will lead us through some fun and a little competitive team based workouts that will help you get ready for the trails, make you injury proof, and develop that third gear for when you need to dig deep.

BACKGROUND: Girls on the Run is a national youth development program that uses running to help 3rd-8th grade girls build confidence and other amazing attributes and skills through running. The season culminates in a 5K, which relies on a lot of community support! We need volunteers to help with all aspects of managing the event and to run with the girls.
SPECIAL INFO: CHRC member Allison Hauser is the Executive Director of Girls On the Run: NYC and Aliza Gazek is coaching a team this season! Aliza’s team members and many of the other girls in the program need buddies to help power them through the 5K and volunteers to set up the course and hand out snacks– this can be you!
Pre-5k Activities and day of registration opens at 8 am and the 5k begins at 9 am.
