Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon: The Results are In!

The results are in!

blue ridge marathon infographic specs 2017

America’s Toughest Road Marathon just keeps getting bigger, with 2,507 registered runners–an 11% increase over last year; 600 volunteers, a brand new (official) double marathon, 10 non-profit race beneficiaries, plus runners hailing from 43 states and nine countries.

Even though warnings of severe weather forced organizers to cancel the event about five hours in, reviews were glowing (thanks, folks!).

Runner Elizabeth R. Bain of California said this about the race in The Roanoke Times: “What really made this course shine (besides the gorgeous views from the tops of the mountains)? YOU, Roanoke! From the volunteers handing out bibs and shirts at packet pick-up, to the mimosa ‘aid station,’ to the guy driving the bus where I took my DNF [did not finish], everyone was so kind and friendly! Even though I’m a slow, back-of-the-pack runner, every aid station had cheers and cowbells and plenty of aid station supplies for me.” read more

On the Road in Oz with Dr. Kris

More from Dr. Kris Down Under!

It is my second speaking event of the Australian tour and tonight we were at the Atlantis Restaurant located in New Ryde. It was a great evening with more than 20 doctors in attendance to learn about women’s wellness. Some of the docs were those that I met at the CCA event the day before. It was an excellent chance for us to discuss more the popular women’s health topics in greater detail and focus on some of the biomechanical factors of pain.

Prior to my lecture I was beginning to feel as though I really needed to be adjusted as the travel impacts were starting to kick in, and across the street from where we were located there just happened to be a Chiropractic office with an open time slot!   Dr. Top Kim from Riverside Chiropractic took excellent care of me and sent me well on my way before my lecture! I had a nice conversation with Dr. Kim about his love for the Chiropractic profession and different treatments he uses in his office. A huge thank you to both Dr. Kim and Dr. Fiona Plant! read more
