A Message From Dr. Calderone

1st Annual Frankford 5k a huge success!

If you haven’t been following the Inaugural Frankford HS 5K on social media you have sure been missing out! I am happy to say that the event was a huge success! Special thanks to all those staff and students that participated in the event this past Saturday. It was an amazing community building experience and if you were not able to participate I hope that you get the opportunity to do so next year.

Special thanks goes out to 1SG Fraioli, Mr. Milhollen (CIS), Ms. Krause (City Year), Mr. King (College & Career), Ms. Thompson (School Psychologist), and Ms. Morris (9th & 11th Grade Counselor). The hours and hours that these people spent planning and organizing this event were on full display this past Saturday (9/30/17).

Race Tips

Whether this is your first 5k or 30th, proper preparation is critical to a fun and healthy run! Here are some tips to ensure a successful and smooth run!

Be sure to…
·  Drink enough water the day before and the morning of the race.
·  Eat a healthy breakfast…but be careful not to eat too much prior to running!
·  Give yourself adequate time to arrive at the race. Stress interferes with mindset, and a healthy mindset is critical to a great run.

Reminders

• Bib pick-up will open at 7:30 AM and will run until 8:15 AM. Runners will also receive race t-shirts!
• Bib pick-up is at 5000 Oxford Ave., in front of Frankford HS.
• Race bibs do NOT have chip timing devices! Please ensure that if you want to time your run, you charge and bring your Garmin or Fitbit, or utilize whatever app you use on your cell phone.

Finish Line and Post-Race Party

After the race concludes, there will be a brief award ceremony. The top 3 male and female finishers will receive 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals! Runners are welcome to enjoy their food and mingle with fellow runners, students, and community members!
