If you are planning on attending any part of the festival, we here at AFAS hope you take care of yourself while you are there. Here are a few simple reminders we would like to give you to keep you on your feet and enjoying the performances. Firstly, drink plenty of water. While you spend the day out in the warm Texas sun, you need to stay hydrated. Plenty of fluids (not including beer) are the best way to avoid heat stroke, dehydration, or other problems caused by too much sun exposure. Be sure to grab your two 32oz bottles of water before you depart. A second reminder is to use a dose of sun block throughout the day to keep sunburn at bay.
We have talked before about appropriate foot wear for your activity. While the beautiful weather may be beckoning you to wear flip flops or sandals, these would not be your best option. Your feet need something more like a tennis shoe. As you walk about part of the 350 acres that comprise Zilker Park, your feet could really use the support. If you don't take care of your feet this weekend, be sure to come by AFAS to fix your aches and pains.
Until next time, keep those feet happy and healthy Austin!
