Beginning Tuesday, April 18th, at 10:45 a.m, The Carter Burden Network/RI Senior Center, 546 Main Street, hosts weekly Road Runner Striders coach-led walking sessions for fun and fitness. It's free!
"Come as you wish, no need to sign up," says Director of Outreach and Community Engagement Hallie Shapiro, "Get fun giveaways, and get fit walking around the island."
According to New York Road Runners, which manages Striders sessions throughout New York, "The NYRR Striders program is geared toward adults 50+ (younger adults are welcome to participate as well) and aims to improve attitudes toward exercise, to make running and walking more accessible, and to increase the presence of fitness walkers and older adults in NYRR five-borough events year-round."
Each session includes:
• 30-45 minutes of walking (indoor or outdoor)
• Stretching and drills to develop strength, coordination, and flexibility
• Active conversations on nutrition and best practices for healthy living
• An opportunity to gather with peers in a fun, social environment
