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.

DivorceCare @ Thomasville Road Baptist Church
Sep 30 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
DivorceCare @ Thomasville Road Baptist Church | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Divorced? Separated? You don’t have to go through it alone.

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.

The TRBC DivorceCare group will meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:

A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.

A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

Sessions will take place weekly, beginning on Sunday, September 9 at 2:00p.m. and will run through November 11, at Thomasville Road Baptist Church, 3131 Thomasville Road in Tallahassee, Room CB 304, which is on the 3rd Floor of the Children’s Building behind the main sanctuary. The cost is $10 per person, which covers the cost of the workbook. For more information, go to www.thomasvilleroad.org.
