Ready to Run Workshop

Get ready for an awesome running season with these pointers from our panel of local experts. The program includes everything you need to know to have your best running year yet - from injury prevention to strength and power building exercises to how to pick the shoe that is right for you.

The answer is yes! That is if you want to either improve performance and/or reduce your injury risk. Join Shilpi Havron, Doctor of Physical Therapy with Ivy Rehab, for a discussion on running form and how poor form can lead to sub par performance as well as injuries like knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, hip pain, stress fractures, etc.

Strength for Runners

Jan will talk about some of the best strength moves for runners. We will concentrate on those that require no equipment and can be done anywhere.

Shoes: Everything you didn't know and more about how they can help you

Eric talks about the way in which shoes play a role in your endurance events endeavors and what you can do to make sure you are using them to your advantage. -Evaluating shoes each time your purchase-Should I have more than one pair?
