Beginning Running Class, starts May 2nd

LMJS will be offering another beginning running program this spring to help you get in shape for a 5K! This program is designed for those who want to work up to a 5K which is 3.1 miles.

These training sessions will be held for five consecutive Saturdays at 10:00am with a 5K race the fifth week and will involve a $30 fee for LMJS member or $35 for non-members. Our runs will sample a few of the gorgeous East Bay area trails. The first will be held Saturday, May 2nd at 10:00 am culminating with a lovely 5K race at Pt Pinole to be held on Saturday, May 30th (race fee extra).

We'll cover topics such as running shoes, running form, safety, injury prevention and hydration and nutrition along the way. We'll provide training schedules, maps, and lots of encouragement. You'll need to come ready to run every Saturday with a water bottle and towel for the end.

You can go to:  http://lmjs.org/training/beginner for more information.

This training is appropriate for anyone who wants to work up to a 5K and for those who haven't run for awhile and want to begin again. RSVP required for this program, with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 30 participants, to keep things manageable.

Come join the fun! E-mail Karen Andrews (runducksrun@gmail.com) with questions about the program.
