We all know that walking and running are a great way to stay in shape, but it can also enhance your health by helping to prevent heart disease and high blood pressure, as well as improve your mood and reduce stress. Nate Vandervest, UWGB Assistant Cross County Coach, CSCS, CES, and former Division 1 cross country runner, has a passion for running and will be presenting this Couch to 5K lunch ‘n learn. He will cover a training plan, as well as common injuries and how to prevent them. Jolene Sell, Registered Dietitian with Chartwells, Wellness Committee member and avid runner, will discuss the right foods to eat as you train for a walk/run. Whether you have run marathons, or are interested in starting walking or running for exercise, please join us for practical help, encouragement, and motivation!

Time: 12:00 to 12:45 p.m.

We will also kick off our new Run/Walk Team at this Lunch ‘n Learn! Our goal is to offer opportunities for employees to train together, share helpful tips and encouragement, provide incentives, and participate in runs/walks together. Our first run/walk will be the Phoenix 5K at UW-Green Bay in April, so Nate will provide practical tips to help you get ready for this 5K!
