If running 26 miles is a daunting thought perhaps you would like to try your ADIDAS in a 13 mile run? Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation can assist you in getting ready! Shawnee Park Center Manager Heather Davis says they are offering an 8-week course for intermediate to advanced runners who are cleared by a physician to take on a long distance event. She tells KZIM KSIM courses are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays before the heat of the day… at 5:15am! But be ready to WORK! One day you will do hills and another you'll be on the track for speed endurance. There will be some strengthening and stretching all mixed up pretty good as far as workouts go. Davis says the 5K training sessions were packed so this expanded class was a no brainer. All ages are welcome. The fee is 48-dollars for 16 sessions beginning July 17th. The deadline is this FRIDAY!!! Entry forms are available at city-of-cape-dot-org-forward-slash-parks.
