Free beginners running program starts Jan. 5

December 6, 2021

The Syracuse Chargers Track Club’s Everyone Can Run Beginners Running Program was postponed last fall due to concerns over the pandemic. It will now start on Jan. 5, 2022 at the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center’s Neulander Family Sports & Fitness Center. Greg Tuttle of the Syracuse Chargers, a USA Track & Field-certified coach, will lead the weekly sessions on Wednesdays from 5:30–6:30 p.m. through Feb. 9, 2022.

The free six-week program will be held at the Fitness Center’s indoor track. Proof of COVID vaccination and wearing a mask is required to attend. Informational presentations from running related professionals will be held at most of the sessions.

Patrick Scott, the JCC’s sports and fitness director, says this program is for everyone and that people of all fitness levels are welcome.

“The Chargers do a great job of teaching people how to run properly,” he says. “The strength of your leg muscles, your bones, your body posture, your gait—all of these affect your stamina. By the end of the program, you will be able to run for 30 minutes with relative ease.”

The class will start with walking and the number of running intervals will increase every week on a set schedule. Each participant will also be given a Syracuse Chargers pedometer and a two-week trial pass to the JCC’s Fitness Center.

Jewish Genealogy Society of CNY Meeting Sunday, Dec. 12, 2021 at 1 p.m. via Zoom.

The cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing

The Jewish Genealogy Society of CNY will hold its next meeting on Sunday, Dec. 12, 2021 at 1 p.m. via Zoom. Special guest Libby Copeland will explore the extraordinary cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Copeland’s presentation will draw on years of research for her new book The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020), which The Wall Street Journal calls “a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing.”

With more than 37 million people having been tested, a tipping point has been reached. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families. The presentation will discuss the implications of home DNA testing for Jewish genealogy, as well as the unique challenges of genetic genealogy for Ashkenazim.

REGISTER FOR THIS ZOOM MEETING >
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
