Should I Wear New Running Shoes for My Race?

I’ve been asked this question several times by runners training for the upcoming Holiday Half Marathon and 5K Run on December 13-14. With less than 4 weeks to go before race time, this is the perfect time to start thinking about your running shoes. Here are my recommendations.

Should I Walk The Half-Marathon This Year?

As an avid runner, physical therapist, and a member of the medical team for the annual Holiday Half-Marathon & 5K Race at Bonelli Regional Park …. I’m often asked, “Should I walk the half-marathon this year?” Here’s my advice for both beginning and regular walkers.

Don’t let the ache affect your swing

Waking up to play golf is a great way to start the day. However, when you finish playing do you feel as great? Maybe there is a little ache when you swing or different pains when you walk away from the 18th green. Maybe there is more soreness than what you are used to when you wake up the next day. Golf is here to stay in your life, what can you do to make sure your body is fit for it?

Answer is Golf WELL.

Sports Medicine ... for the athlete in all of us

Admit it! We all have a little “athlete” inside of us! What’s yours? Maybe a senior golfer, a marathon runner, a high school quarterback or Little League pitcher … or are you a weekend warrior trying to hold on to “the dream” … and hold off the effects of aging? Well, regardless of your age and skill level, or whether you’re participating in organized sports or simply staying active … the unfortunate reality is with our efforts to remain fit comes a risk of injury. It could be a minor nagging pain or something much more serious, but either way, if it happens we all want the best available care … care that will get us back in action ... back doing what we love.
