Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum
Jun 11 – Dec 31 all-day
Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground: The Architecture of Ant Nests explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until December 31, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

GULF WINDS TRACK CLUB 2018 Beginning Running Group @ FSU - Mike Long Track, part of the McIntosh Track & Field facility  | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Are you new to running (or getting back into it) and needing some motivation to start or stick with a running routine? Want to complete a 5k (3.1 mile) event this year?

In this 8 week program, we’ll offer the tools, training, and support to help you gradually build your endurance and achieve your goal!

Beginners have different needs and objectives when working toward the 5k goal, so we’ll have 3 groups available each Wednesday. You choose which group suits your needs week to week:

Run-Walk-Run
Starting with 1-mile of running and walking, progress toward continuously running 3 miles by the 8th week. Training Week 1 starts with a 1 minute run:1 minute walk – or 1:1 – ratio. Each week, the number of minutes running increases as the goal distance steps up (i.e. 1:1 for 1 mile, 2:1 for 1.25 mile, etc).
Run-Walk Only
Starting with 1-mile of running and walking, participants complete the goal distance each week using a set 1 minute run:1 minute walk ratio. This won’t change from week to week (i.e. Week 1 is 1:1 for 1 mile, Week 2 is 1:1 for 1.25 mile, etc).
Running
Starting with a 1-mile run in Week 1, participants progress toward running 3 miles continuously with little to no walking by the 8th week. They will increase running distance by ¼-mile each week, adding roughly 2 to 3 minutes to their running endurance per week.

FREE to Gulf Winds Track Club members and FREE to the community!
