UPCOMING OPPORTUNITY FOR USING EARNED RUNS BIBS: DST DASH
Running a custom-designed race or event alone or with a few others on the day the clocks are set "forward" an hour is a perfect way to anticipate and celebrate the later sunrise and sunset.
if you choose to run in the morning you’ll need to arise before your usual time to get on the road before the first rays gild the sky. However, knowing that the day will be brighter longer into the evening might make up for a groggy start, An evening run would mean starting to gear up at a time you might normally be powering down, but it would definitely mark the date as the beginning of the next 8 months of light preservation.
Either way, you would begin acclimating to the new hours almost immediately.
If you choose to run this day there are a limited number of “Daylight Saving Dash” stickers available to the first few people who request bibs if the request box is checked.

“DAYLIGHT SAVING DASH”
Celebrate the start of the time change that adds daylight to the later portion of the day with a distance race or walking event of 1 mile or 5K. Your clocks should be set to “spring forward” at 2am. Run or walk your event early in the morning at the later SUNRISE time, or in the evening at the later SUNSET time
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
