Ryan's Firepower 5K
Lace-up your running shoes for a 5k race hosted by Benchmark Physical Therapy in honor and memory of Ryan Cook, PTA. Benchmark Physical Therapy strives to deliver exceptional care to all patients – a goal that Ryan exceeded daily. Ryan’s patients and co-workers remember him by his smile and willingness to help all of those that came into the clinic. A scholarship fund has been established in Ryan’s memory to support aspiring Physical Therapist Assistants through their schooling and training. All donations and sponsorship purchases will go directly to Lanier Tech in honor of Ryan. The 5K course will be pretty flat & fast in beautiful Rock Creek Park. This is a super spectator-friendly course.

Beginner Runner Training Plan
Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!
The None to Run Beginner Plan is super gradual and achievable, no matter your starting point. In 12 weeks, you’ll be able to run 25 minutes non-stop (and actually enjoy it).
None to Run is different from most beginner plans:
- Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
- Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
- Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.
If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.
