Cherrydale Branch Library and DC Road Runners partner this spring in the name of fitness and the physical and mental preparation needed to run a 5K.

If you’re a healthy adult looking to slowly build from walking to running a 5K, this program has what it takes to get you ready in just 9 weeks! The goal is participation in the DC Road Runners 2013 Bluemont 5K, which takes place July 17.

Taking part in “Reading and Running” costs nothing and includes:

  •  Group walks/runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. beginning May 14 at the Cherrydale Branch Library
  •  Complete training plan and tips from Road Runners Club of America certified coaches
  •  Seminars and discussions on nutrition and physical activity
  •  Inspirational reading list and book discussion
  •  Families welcome!
  •  Motivation and camaraderie found only in a training group!

Register online for Reading and Running at DC Road Runners.

For more information, call 703-228-6330 or stop by the Cherrydale Branch Library. Please check with a doctor before starting any physical activity.
