"If it has been a long time since you have run, or if you have never
ran farther than across the street, then the Fit 2 Run 5 program is
for you," says Jennifer Wilham, an ALMH physical therapist, runner
and program coordinator.
The first six-week training session
begins Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the ALMH Rehabilitation
Services gym. Participants will complete an initial fitness testing
to establish a baseline fitness level that will determine their
personal training regimen.
The next five sessions will include both indoor and outdoor
training, including stretching and conditioning in the ALMH gym. Fit
2 Run 5 participants will meet from 4 to 5 p.m. on June 27; July 11,
18 and 25; and Aug. 1.
A second Fit 2 Run 5 session will begin on Sept. 5 and continue
on Sept. 12, 19 and 26, and Oct. 3 and 10. This session will further
develop participant stamina to run the second annual Moving Forward
5K on Oct. 13.
The cost to participate in one or both sessions is only $20 and
includes a T-shirt. Call the ALMH Rehab Department at 217-605-5500
for more information, or to register. Forms are also available at
the ALMH information desk in the lobby or at the rehab reception
Those interested are encouraged to act soon, as Fit 2 Run 5 is
limited to the first 25 paid participants.
