Firecracker 5K July 3, 2010




I started a group of beginning runners from my patient population about 8 weeks ago. I put sign up sheets in the office advertising free 5k training on two nights a week. I encouraged all my cardiac patients to consider. Most would not even look at the sheets despite them being posted above the sign in sheets, the sign out, and over the scales. I finally got a few takers and the groupt started. 5 patiennts signed up. One has a temporary knee injury. The remaining four patients have had either angioplasty or coronary bypass surgery. They have met and walked and jogged a little twice weekly over the past 8 weeks. Three completed the 5K this weekend with one winning second in her age group. These were non exercisers. The grew to enjoy the walking/jogging and each others company. They had a great time running/walking Saturday despite the heat. I hope that these folks will set an example for the rest of my patients that that they are too old not to join. Hats off to the group. I think we may need a name.

  2. I found your blog thru Ashland Dave. It is great that you are getting your patients involved with running. My friend, Claudia, is a runner with heart disease and is recovering from a bypass. She's just created a blog and wants to share her story. I think the two of you have similar missions to help people/women into better heart health. If you could stop by and say hi I'm sure she'd be elated. Her blog is www.runningformyheart.blogspot.com

That’s the particular frame of mind which includes offered solution to any fervent Marant fanbase.
    The lady furthermore have any knack regarding converting the particular naff directly into fresh, or perhaps at least renewed since the lady produced inside over a American frontier concept in which triggered padded yoked tops, slim slacks together with gaucho curl styles and also cowboy boot styles. The lady worked well components of Tiny Residence around the Prairie directly into Edwardian wide lace attire and also everyday tops. Laser-cut buckskin and also studded little attire developed the particular more difficult plus more attractive parts inside the assortment.
    Nonetheless, the particular silhouette scarcely wavered coming from the girl thoroughly tested cropped slim trouser, the particular nestled inside top and also pointy pushes and a dropping of the quilted outdoor jackets and also satin bombers. Marant receives apart together with basically transforming the theme due to the fact she’s properly alert to just what the girl lady would like coming from a great Isabel Marant little bit of garments. Almost everything must appear to be there was clearly small energy involved in an collection, which explains why Marant didn’t make an effort to resolve a thing that plainly wasn’t busted.
