Warming up and cooling down key to a healthy run

How many of you go out for a run without warming up? It’s important to give your muscles time to warm up prior to your workout. It only takes a few minutes and can mean the difference between an injury and a great workout. Once your workout is complete, take a few minutes for recovery and cool down stretching. I like to begin by warming up my joints. I begin with neck circles and progress to... 

New treatments offer relief from osteoarthritis

So you’ve been dealing with that pesky shoulder on and off for years, that smarts when you get to that certain point when you reach overhead.  That knee pain that you chalk up to your old running days. Or that hip that bugs you when you’re putting on your shoes and socks.  Some days are better than others. You often feel stiff after long bouts of inactivity, until you “get moving.” You... 

Smokedog takes his clubs and goes home

The world of golf has lost another character. Tarn “Smokedog” Hunter of Myrtle Beach announced his retirement from golf today via a Facebook post live from the course. Hunter is apparently going to focus more on “his fishing career and mini-golf”. Although Hunter only played occasionally, he’s decided that the endless whiffs, lost balls, and trips across ‘cart path only’ holes...

Letterman leaves behind a string of great sports moments

I just spent my very last night hanging out with David Letterman, and I feel like I’ve lost an old friend. Not a best friend. Like most long-term relationships, Dave and I lost touch for periods of time as my tastes in humor changed over the years. But when we got together, it was like old times. For a span of 33 years, I laughed at his unique brand of humor – jokes so dry they are... 

Keeping up with Jones could become habit in NASCAR circles

It occurred to me after I watched the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 16 that I have spent precious little time this season talking about the “all-stars” of our sport. Instead, I have stayed true to form and gone off on a series of odd tangents on things like inappropriate terms of endearment and Tiger Woods. I have done you a disservice. I feel badly about it. So this week I have decided...

In other words, surround yourself with those who continually challenge themselves to be amongst the highest trained practitioners, learn from them, and improve upon the delivery of care.

Book reveals ‘Big Bill’ France as true visionary

It is a rare occurrence, but occasionally in the world of professional sports an individual comes along who becomes the standard bearer for his particular field of competition. It’s generational, to some degree. My Michael Jordan may be my kid’s LeBron James, for example, or your dad’s long speeches about the genius of Fran Tarkenton may mirror your own enthusiasm for the athletic stylings... 

You asked me to remind you, I’m reminding you. It’s this weekend

We often see a lot of cool things here at GSSR. Victory, defeat, suspense, character building; sports has it all. But it’s those moments of sharing that really touch me personally. The Special Olympics is annually one of my favorite events to attend and volunteer for. Going in, I feel like it’s my way of giving back. Leaving the event, I always feel like I am the one who received the gift. Another...
