TOWNSHEND- Want to get started running, but not sure how to do it safely? The Grace Cottage “Couch to 5K” group is designed for just that.

Grace Cottage Family Health and Hospital is hosting the Spring Into Health 5K, on Saturday, May 13. Grace Cottage nurse practitioner Jorda Daigneault will be leading a “Couch to 5K” preparation-support group for eight weeks in March, April, and May.

The C25K group will meet Wednesdays at 5 pm in the Grace Cottage cafeteria through May 10. Participation is free. The group will train together once a week, and they’ll be encouraged to train on their own time two more days each week. By the end of the eight weeks, participants should be able to run a 5K, but walking during the Spring Into Health 5K is also perfectly acceptable.

Proceeds from the 5K benefit Grace Cottage. Online registration for the 5K is available at www.gracecottage.org/events. For more information on the C25K group or the 5K call (802) 365-9109.
