–Columbus Running Company–

Dr. Missy and Saif traveled to Columbus Running Company’s Speed Group at Karrer Middle School in Dublin! They chatted with the group about the importance of form in order to prevent injury and introduced them to Dry Needling! The Runner’s also participated in a few muscle activation and hip stabilization exercises that would be beneficial for a higher level running regimen. They also learned how to improve their performance by implementing quiet, shorter strides during a run!

–Cbus Beat Down–

The CBus Beatdown came to Town for the FIRST time ever! This event, held at a Track and Field by Raw War Crossfit, was filled with blood, sweat, rain, and k-tape! We all braved the crazy weather and we were happy to be there to assess and tape up athletes! Congrats to everyone who participated!
