New RPAR runners complete first 5K
New runners from the Ruston Parks and Recreation Start to Finish 5K Program completed their first 5K this past Saturday at the Pie Run in Shreveport.
The class began in September and met twice a week for nine weeks. The students started the class by running 60 second intervals alternating with walking, increased their running interval time each week and completed the class by running a 5K race. Completing the race were Mark Cross, Maggie Guillot, Jennifer Martin, Tina Bowen, Shannon Roberts, Kelly Smith and Carole Witten. Maryanne Smith was their coach and mentor.
