Walker, jogger, competitive runner – All are welcome!

With our Viking 5K right around the corner, I sat down with our LCS Cross Country and Track coach Milton Lyons. He shared some excellent information about how to get started if you want to run.  “It starts with the right equipment—your shoes,” Milton said. Investing in proper footwear is critical.
