When thinking about a holistic approach to running, you must think about your entire lifestyle. The core of holistic health relies on being connected through the mind, body, and spirit. Here are some tips on how to approach training for the OIAH 5k or even a marathon in a holistic way:

Rest Up
In order to perform at your best, you need to be well rested! It is recommended that you get about 8 hours of sleep every night. An easy way to achieve this sleep goal is by sticking to a realistic sleep schedule consistently.

Practice Runs
Practice by going on two shorter runs the week before. Running shorter distance multiple times throughout the week will condition your body to these types of workouts. Additionally, when it is time for you to run longer distances, your body will be ready for the physical activity. The practice runs will make it easier to complete the 5k.

Fuel Your Body
Eating healthy snacks will help improve your energy level. It is always great to focus on clean eating. Try these healthy and quick snacks:

* Carrots
* Bananas
* String cheese
* Rice cakes w/peanut butter
* Oatmeal
* Tuna fish

Just remember treating your body right allows you to be the best version of you!
