The first-ever Attack The Day 5K is on June 20, and to help Bulldog Nation get ready for this virtual 5K, several UGA alumni who work in the fitness industry will be offering free Zoom fitness classes to all ATD5K registrants! These alumni will give insight, tips and tricks on a wide variety of preparations for a 5k: from yoga to stretching to nutrition tips, we’ve got a class for all body types and fitness levels.

We’ll be adding new classes throughout the month, so watch this space to learn about everyone who can help you train like a Dawg!

Bio: Jennifer Tyler earned her degree in Culinary Arts and Pastry Arts from the Art Institute of Atlanta. She has worked locally in Atlanta, in the Pacific Northwest and overseas as a Pastry Chef and Executive Chef. Her favorite dishes incorporate her Southern roots with a professional edge. She loves introducing new foods and techniques to her family and friends. Her culinary mission is to make cooking accessible and enjoyable.
Class time: Tuesday, June 16 @ 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Class description: For the class, Jennifer has designed a customizable pre-race meal. She will provide tips on adjusting the recipes to meet individual preferences in regard to macro-nutrients, allergies, and lifestyle. It’s also her mission to make cooking accessible, so she will offer several tips on just “making it work!” This approach should appeal to both novice and intermediate cooks.
“The planned menu for the demo is:
Seared Peanut Chicken with Soba Noodles: the dish is Gluten free, and the Protein can be adjusted or Plant-based. The Soba noodles (a carb) can be substituted with starchy vegetable “noodles,” rice, spaghetti, or whatever is on hand.
Ginger Honey Mint Syrup: designed as an after dinner “dessert” that can be used on seasonal fruit, as an after-dinner tea, or—for a more decadent approach—on grilled poundcake (yum!). Ginger and Mint are both great digestives to have after a meal.
For post-race electrolytes, I’ll do a quick demo on a Salted Lemonade/Limeade”
