After training for my first half marathon over 3 years ago, I became injured and ended up not being able to race. I didn’t realize it at the time, but it became a blessing in disguise. After rehabbing myself, and incorporating a different style of strength training and mobility training, I was running faster, stronger and for longer periods of time. That is how Running With Goldens got started. I realized I can help other runners who are in the same position and just want to keep running without injuries or setbacks.
Around the same time I started treating a ton of runners, realizing all injured runners have one thing in common. Because of the repetitive pattern of movement, runners who are either injured or have been injured, lack a specific piece to their training program-addressing the asymmetries with dynamic unilateral movements and mobility training. I have made it my mission to help runners across the globe run injury free, and prevent future injuries.
