The First Genesis 5k Class of 2017 Starts Soon!

By: Matt Young

Get up and running in 2017! 

The first Genesis 5k class of 2017 starts on Monday, February 6th with our indoor winter class. 

If you are brand new to running and maybe you haven't done it since you were a little kid then this is for you.  No running experience or athletic background is required. Just sign up, show up, and get started. 

I often get the question, "Can I really do this"?  Or, I hear "I've tried to run before and can't make it past a few weeks."  

Since 2007 we've helped new runners get in to the sport and finish their first 5k. Over the past 4 years we've graduated over 1600 participants.  

Check out the highlight video from our fall 2017 class and you'll see all ages, shapes and sizes.  It's never too late to begin.

And here's the highlight video from our indoor class last year. 

The winter class is at Teays Physical Therapy and Potential Plus in Teays Valley.

We meet on Monday nights at 6:45 pm for 9 weeks.

Then we'll all finish a 5k together on Saturday, April 8th.

All of the information including class details and registration is on the Genesis Running site.

Give it a try, you'll be glad you did. 

This class is limited to 40 participants and filled up the last two years so register soon.

If you're a Genesis grad then please do me a favor and share this email with 5 people that you believe could benefit from this training and may be interested.  We've grown because our runners share their success with others and it becomes contagious.

See you out there-
