It’s Time to Prepare!

Now that you’re clued in on the fun, it’s time to prepare! First, check your own closets for any clothes you may have held on to from your favorite past time moments. Perhaps if they don’t fit you they may fit one of your children or a friend or other family member. If there is nothing to be found, you can hit the thrift stores, which are known to have styles from various eras. Be sure to pick your favorite era and choose a full style idea before shopping. You don’t want to accidentally clash two of them together because you couldn’t quite remember if that was the 70’s or the 80’s! Don’t forget accessories and makeup and hair styles for the ladies as well!

If you will be participating in the run, it is also important to prepare for the run itself. If you have any medical conditions, be sure to let your doctor know of your intent to participate and get the OK. Make sure you build up to the 5K or 10K depending on your current fitness level and the run in which you hope to participate. Don’t forget to eat well, drink a lot of water, and always stretch before running!

Most of all, HAVE FUN!!!

    I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many, it’s in the hundreds, I suppose. I love these runs because they seem to be a challenge for me with me being disabled and homebound.
