Special thanks to guest author and Core Studio leader, Samantha Glaes for this informative and timely article.
This weekend, thousands of runners will descend on Missoula for the 7th Annual Missoula Marathon. This event lasts three days, with a little something for everyone. The Core Studio’s sister company, Alpine Physical Therapy, continues on this year as a Missoula Marathon title physical therapy sponsor. Alpine has been on board with the Missoula Marathon since its inception, and The Core Studio is excited to participate in Saturday’s festivities alongside our fantastic therapists and support staff.
The Core Studio will set up under Caras Park’s tent around 8 a.m. Saturday morning for the Marathon Expo. Pam, Riley, and Dan will spend the day talking with runners about CoreAlign, Pilates, training, stretching, standing, and running posture, recovery, and also about the great sights and opportunities around Missoula. The Core Studio will bring a few pieces of equipment to try out, so take the opportunity to see what CoreAlign and Reformer are all about.
Right there with The Core Studio will be an assortment of Alpine therapists. They plan to answer questions about aches and pains, assess ongoing running issues, and help formulate a recovery plan. There may even be a little physio-tape involved. On Sunday (race day), therapists will lead a group warm up at both starting locations. Notably, the Alpine team will once again be providing post-race massages for over 120 half and full marathon participants to help facilitate a faster and more comfortable recovery after race day.
Overall, the Missoula Marathon is one of our favorite events of the year. We love the new and familiar faces and the sense of camaraderie among participants, volunteers, and supporters. The Missoula Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier, and even with those elevated stakes for some, the people on the course are the friendliest of any event around. Sunday’s races are a great opportunity to see the culmination of hard work and training and to find inspiration from athletes of all types and ages. So come see us at Saturday’s Expo, and maybe start to think about your own course tour in 2014. Then come by on Race Day to enjoy lemonade or a Big Sky Brew with everyone who crosses the finish line.
*We want to thank all the folks from The Core Studio who are poised to make this the best Marathon ever, as well as Alpine’s PTs. Special thanks to TCS instructor and Alpine superstar Kristi Moore for getting us organized for Saturday and Sunday. High 5 to you Kristi. You rock!
