Boulder Half-Ironman and Active Release Technique (ART)

What a great weekend in the Front Range!  Since I have been in practice I have treated at over 25 races but this weekend in Boulder was a whole ‘nother animal.  ART (Active Release Technique) has been a proud partner with Ironman for years and the vets always look for the ART tent at each race to take care of any little tweaks before racetime.   Triathletes in general are very interesting folks and it was great hearing all of their stories this weekend.  Athletes were coming in from Florida to Seattle and being a flatlander originally it was nice hearing that the elevation was effecting even these superb athletes.

Supporters need Treatment as well

On race day our crew was working the finish line mking sure the people were feeling okay and escorting them to the med tent if necessary.  I am happy to report that besides a few cases of heat exhaustion there were no serious injuries.  It was an emotional day for the finishers and being at the finish line, it was impossible not to get swept up in all of it.  Congrats to you all!
