Synergy PFT to takeover the Moody Street 5K!

The Fourth Annual Moody Street 5K will held on May 4, 2014 at noon and we want Team Synergy to be out representing in full force!!! 

This will be the fourth year that Team Synergy meets as a group to participate in the great local event. It is a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon while getting some fresh air, exercise, and even meeting new people from the club. I know I hear a lot of members say they are not “runners” but that’s the great thing about this race its the perfect distance for all levels – walkers, beginning runners or even seasoned running veterans.

 To make sure everyone is pumped up and ready for the race we will meet at the club Sunday morning. Let’s not forget our family and friends please encourage them to join us on Sunday as part of our team (Synergy PFT). At the club you will get your free Synergy T-shirt, fuel up for the race (healthy prerace snacks will be served) & stretch out with a series of guided prerace flexibility exercises before a warm-up walk to the starting line.
