The Noble Public Library is getting fit this spring, and summer, with an eight-week series Get Fit: Couch to 5K Training.
Those interested in the group will meet weekly at 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays from May 12 through June 30 at Ken King Park in Noble.
Each session will start with a brief talk about fitness and running, and then the group split into a walking group and a running group. The distance will start small and increase a little each week. Group members also will get a suggested training schedule and information about upcoming 5K runs they may want to try.
Teens ages 12 and up and adults are invited to attend, and registration is not required, though a signed waiver will be required for each participant.
The Noble Public Library invites families to an evening to learn about the benefits of yoga at its weekly Family Yoga Nights, taking place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings during May. Program dates are May 4, 11, 18 and 25.
Instructor Shannon Scott will guide participants of all ages in basics of yoga during the one-hour events. The event is for all ages, and each participant or their parent/guardian will need to sign a waiver to attend classes.
