2017 No Frills, Just Thrills race series begins June 13! – South Jersey Athletic Club

2017 No Frills, Just Thrills race series begins June 13! These events are hosted by the South Jersey Athletic Club

It’s time once again for the South Jersey Athletic Club “No Frills, Just Thrills” race series. Our Silver Anniversary 25th year of the “No Frills” series begins Tuesday evening June 13 at 7:00pm with The John McMenamin 10K race (6.2 miles) at Cooper River Park.

The other five nights of races are:

June 27 – 1, 2 or 3 Loop Races Note: due to the length of the 3 Loop race, these all begin at 6:30pm

July 11 – Jerry Nolan 1 Loop (3.65 miles) race at 7pm

July 25 – Harry Berkowitz One Mile Run at 6:40pm and 1 or 2 Loop races at 7:00 pm

August 8 – 1 Loop Prediction race at 7pm

August 22 – 1 Loop race Note: due to earlier sunset in late August, this race also begins at 6:30pm

A schedule for all six nights of this year’s events is available on the SJAC web site here: No Frills, Just Thrills schedule

Come out to run the races, it’s still only a $5 entry fee, $3 for SJAC members and free for full time students!

Don’t want to run?  Come and help out by volunteering!  We can always use volunteers for these races.
We typically have some runners arrive to sign up by 6:15pm.  If you’re available early and want to help with race registration we can use you by not later than 6:15pm and your “job” will be over just after the race starts at 7pm.  If you can help out in other areas such as course marshal, water stop, finish line, etc., we’ll need you at least until the last runner finishes (last year that was just before 8pm for the 1 Loop Race).  This series is all about fun and having a good time.  Often time the club heads to the Cooper House, located at the parking lot just east of our finish area in the stadium.

The ELDOA Method has hit the Jersey Shore, coming soon to Haddonfield and Mount Laurel!

This past weekend, Jill Kemenosh, Dr. Mark Kemenosh, and CK Pilates hosted an introduction to The ELDOA Method to help combat typical areas of pain and tenderness with a new type of deep myofascial stretching.  ELDOA, which translates to LOADS (longitudinal osteoarticular decoaptation system) was developed by world renowned Osteopath, Guy Voyer, initially to provide rehabilitation for people suffering from scoliosis. Each posture was developed with surgeon-like precision, working on decompressing individual spinal segments. This precision bring an added diagnostic benefit to the training: it exposes specific weaknesses and give the practitioner the information needed to tackle their individual issues even after one class.  The most commonly treated issues with ELDOA are low back pain and neck pain.

The intro class was structured to include ELDOA for each segment of the spine – lumbar, thoracic, cervical – and the exercises are beneficial to anyone and everyone taking the class. This training alone was successful in slowing down and even reversing the effects of scoliosis. It is now used by a variety of people (professional athletes, children, seniors, exercise enthusiasts) for countless benefits including; pain relief, postural alignment and awareness, spinal decompression, better neurological and endocrine function and full body fitness.

Here are some photos of the event hosted at CK Pilates in Marmora, NJ!  (Click on them for the full view)

The next events will hopefully be hosted at Haddonfield Fitness in Haddonfield, New Jersey as well as our new location opening this summer in Mount Laurel, New Jersey!

U.S. News and World Report – Sports Chiropractic Treatment for Running Injuries

Cruising the web this weekend waiting for Sunday to roll around for the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, this article popped up on my twitter feed shared by colleague in North Jersey!  I’m usually all over good press for the work my team and I do here at the office, and even more so on the look out when it comes to helping runners.

Link: http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/eat-run/2013/11/04/sports-chiropractic-treatment-for-running-injuries

From the article:

Why see a sports chiropractor for a running injury?

Although physical therapy is often the first line of defense in rehabbing a running injury, many athletes and runners have started to rely on sports medicine-trained chiropractors. While physical therapy can focus on strengthening and coordination, chiropractic care is designed to improve joint mobilization, making sure that all the joints in the body are moving correctly. Hirad Bagy, founder of the United Wellness Center in Herndon, Va., and team chiropractor for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals and DC United, believes that sports chiropractic care has evolved to incorporate the best of both worlds of joint mobilization techniques and soft tissue repair, creating a new gold standard of best practices in treatment plans for patients.

From the article:

Active Release Technique for runners

After three months of not being able to run, in almost constant pain ranging from my iliotibial band to the back of my hip and then into my psoas muscle, I was admittedly ready for anything when my orthopedist suggested trying Active Release Technique. According to Bagy, the reason that Active Release Technique can be beneficial – especially for iliotibial band and hip injuries – is that it combines different muscle work that breaks down scar tissue while also emphasizing correct flexibility. Through Active Release, as Bagy explains, you can actually “elongate some of the muscle fibers making those muscles more pliable and therefore healthier.”

Anyone preparing for ART should know that this is not a particularly gentle treatment. I tried telling myself that it would be like a deep tissue massage, which I enjoy, although I quickly learned that while highly effective (after three weeks my pain, though still there, was incrementally improving), the pressure and work on the muscles is deep and sometimes painful.
