Cannot believe it is already the middle of May, crazy stuff!
Team Denver Chiropractic Center was on hand treating the athletes at the Barkin Dog Duathlon at Cherry Creek State Park, this was the biggest race of the season so far and alot of fun. As a big’n myself, I always appreciate when they have a Clydesdale and Athena divisions in the race but I am pretty sure the Clydesdale winner finished in top 10 overall. The guy was 6’6″ and 230#. Complete beast, I had him on my table for Active Release Techniques and had a good chat with him. Good on ya Big Man!
My folks were in town visiting so after the race we took them to Denver Zoo (Keri and I are members, BEST $80/yr we have ever spent). I was enthralled watching the gorillas, specifically the two Silverbacks. Amazing creatures and if you have the chance, sit for a while and observe their movements. Strength and efficiency of movement is incredible. Elegance incarnate my friend!
Tonight at Personal Best Fitness Center we are doing a workout that will make you forget about your Monday blues, be prepared to sweat and improve!
