From Couch to 5K!

Couch to 5K ParticipantsSeven brave and intrepid people completed NHTI's first-ever Lynx Couch to 5k Program this month.  The program, which was coordinated by Alyssa LaBelle and coached by Perry Seagroves, was launched this summer on July 27.  The goal was to train a group of non-runners for the NHTI 50th Anniversary race on October 3.  This race was all on trails, which meant slower times than most races that are on pavement.

Seven determined people completed both the program and the 5K race.  They are: Richie Colodarei (25:45), Janet Ercolini (31:39),  Barbara Duquette (34:34), Lucyann Zellers (35:38) Sarah Hebert (36:25), Sharon Richardson (43:19), and Sue Dalpra (53:34).  Please congratulate these people when you see them.  There is a second group in the program that started later and will use the Wicked Fit 5K on October 31 as their race.

There will probably be some type of Couch to 5K program conducted this spring that will end with the NHTI Delta Dental 5K race in late April.  Contact Perry Seagroves,, if you want to get off your couch and run a 5K!

This Month in the Library Gallery

For October, the Library's featured exhibit is avant garde paintings by Concord artist Andre Bertolino.

Andre Bertolino artwork

Andre has been working with spray paint since the 90's, but the majority of his work was done in oil until recently.  He is a self-taught, luddite, misanthrope in his early thirties, who irons pants for a living in Concord.  Feel free to "like" Andre Bertolino's FB fan page for updates, or tell him your opinion of this exhibition via email at, or text (413) 438-5581.

Also in the Library:  Historic NHTI Club Pins: A 50th Anniversary Exhibit!  And the ongoing Library Staff Cat Photo Contest!  (Can you match the cats with their people?)
