Couch to 5K Begins January 18th

Looking for some motivation to get off of the couch and start running? Decatur Active Living is offering a free Couch to 5K program beginning on January 18th. We will start off slow, and build endurance over 8 weeks. And of course, we will have fun!

The group will meet on Mondays at 6 pm and Fridays at 8 am in front of the Decatur Recreation Center. Group members will also do a third run on their own during the week. Safety measures for COVID will be in place.
