“Learn to Run” Workout #1! Yes, you can!
Almost anyone can learn to run 5km, the trick is to start slow and easy and gradually build up over time. Bring some comfortable running shoes and we’ll head outside, rain or shine, for Day 1 of a Learn to Run program! Hopefully we can do this early early in the conference, so there will be one day off and then you can grab a buddy and do the 2nd workout of Week 1!
I have been a run leader for the 2nd largest 10km race in North America, The Vancouver Sun Run, for 5 years. I’m excited to introduce some LIFE is Good participants to what “Learn to Run” can look like, and how it can be achievable for many people, even those who think “I could never run!” Hosted by Shonna Morgan.

Nitrogen Ice Cream
Everyone loves the moment when the liquid nitrogen pours and the clouds of white rise – then out of the cool mist comes delicious, light ice creams and sorbets made on the spot with our fresh ingredients. This has become a conference tradition since I first started facilitating this at the Boston Live and Learn. Held on the closing picnic, it works best when people bring a wide selection of ingredients for their favorite ice cream recipes.
We can make small batches of everything from vanilla to espresso to mint chocolate chip to jalapeno jelly strawberry. And it works just as will with non-dairy drinks like soy, almond or rice milks and juices. Generally served in small cones or paper cups for the gluten-free. I could use some helpers – so please don’t hesitate to approach me at the conference. Hosted by James Coburn.
