DeKALB – Have you ever wanted to start running or walk/run a 5K? Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists has launched a Spring Into Running 5K Training Program. This 8-week program will include training in a fun group setting three times a week, with each session running 30-45 minutes. Injury prevention tips, prevention exercises, along with support and encouragement to reach your own personal goals, are all part of the program. At the end of the session, participants will receive a Northern Rehab T-shirt and the opportunity to participate in the Neighbors’ House annual 5K race on April 27 (participants register for this race on their own and race fee is not included in this program).
