At UF Law:
Lawyers Running Club
The Lawyers Running Club, better known as Running with Lidsky, organizes weekly runs around campus to emphasize fitness and to form relationships within the UF Law community. Anybody in the law school is welcome. The group accommodates people of all abilities. Some people choose to walk while others run; either way is fine.
The group’s jog takes them on a 5k route – a little over three miles – around the west side of Lake Alice, over to Gale Lemerand Drive, then back up Village Drive to the UF Law campus. It is usually about a 30-minute commitment, depending on how fast one goes. Student Affairs provides Gatorade for the group afterwards.
The half-mile path, which circles the UF Law campus, gives students, faculty and staff access to a conveniently located trail, making it a little easier to stay in shape or just get the blood moving in between classes.
The Law Yoga Club: Bringing Students to the Mats meets at noon on Tuesdays and at 4 p.m. on Thursdays in the Advocacy Center lobby. Classes are free and open to students, alumni and faculty. Participants should bring their own mats.
