Miles 4 Kay

1 Feb

February 1 kicks off the Miles 4 Kay, a program that raises awareness and funds for women’s cancer. Initiated by Kay Yow herself, she teamed up “with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and The V Foundation for Cancer Research to form the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a 501 c(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause,” (source). University Recreation is helping raise awareness by wearing our pink shirts and logging miles on the pink treadmills! $.10 per mile will be donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund during the month of February.

Not only is running or walking on a pink treadmill honorable enough by itself..but knowing that every step taken is helping a great foundation- worth all the glisteningsweat and miles!

To encourage you to log miles, I’ve created a list of treadmill sessions..so you really have no excuse! I’ve taken the guess-work out for you so all you have to do is print it, take it with you, and do ya thang!

    […] Another treadmill workout for the books! As much as I’d rather run outside, running on the treadmill is a great way to incorporate speed training into my routines, especially for some upcoming races! When running outside, the scenery, listening to music, nature, and maintaining a consistent pace are precedent over speed and intensity; on the treadmill, a steady pace is way too boring so opting for intervals where the speed and/or incline are constantly changing makes the session fly by.
