Celebrate Thanksgiving on the Run with the Whole Family

Oh, what fun it is to run in Cincinnati on Thanksgiving Day morning. Let's all do this! Sign up the whole family today at last year's prices!

McDonald's Kids Run
After 107 years, the W&S Thanksgiving Day Walk/Run is adding the McDonald's Kids Fun Run so that the whole family can celebrate together. The non-competitive event will include a Quarter K Kids Run for ages 5-8, and a Half K Kids Run for ages 9-11. The loop courses will be on Second Street, and the kids will start and finish at the official start and finish lines race banners - just like Mom and Dad! Every child will receive a cool race shirt and a finishers' medal. It's time to register the whole family for a local Runcation!

Tee-Up a Stunning Run
Our new long sleeve shirt is so soft and comfortable it almost feels like it's not even there, and it's oh-so-beautiful with the new watercolor design by local artist Holly Schapker.

Can cortisone injections ease joint pain?

"Regular cortisone injections are among the most effective methods your doctor can use to relieve joint pain from an injury or arthritis," said Dr. Brian Grawe from UC Health. "These injections work by reducing the inflammation in and around your joint. They are used most often for knee and shoulder pain but can be used in any joint in the body," Grawe said.

Doctors try to limit the injections to every three months for any single joint. It may take up to seven days for the cortisone to take effect, and in most cases there isn't any joint damage. "Every injection has a small risk of infection, so patients need to keep the area clean," Grawe added.

Is there a very simple way to choose the right running and walking shoes?

New research concludes that there is a scientific way to pick the right running shoe; but, it's so simple that most of us ignore it. Our bodies are actually very good judges of how each of us should move and run so pay close attention to your body's opinion about running shoe options. Try on about four pairs of recommended shoes, jog around in each, and you can usually tell which pair feels the most comfortable. That's your answer!

What's the difference between dreams and goals?

  1. Goals are something you are acting on. Dreams are something you are just thinking about. Goals require action. Dreams can happen without getting out of your chair.
  2. Goals have deadlines. Dreams are just, well, dreams. Goals must have a deadline. They have a time limit. Dreams can go on forever. In fact, many people maintain dreams their entire lives.
  3. Dreams are free. Goals have a cost. While you can daydream for free, goals don't come without a price. Time, money, effort and sweat.
  4. Goals produce results. Dreams inspire them. Want to change your life? Your job? Your status in life? Goals can do that.
  5. Goals have a finish line. Dreams never have to end. Dreams can go on forever. They don't have to have an ending point. Goals must have a specific outcome.
  6. Dreams can inspire you. Goals can change your life. Dreams can bring you motivation. They can inspire you. But, goals can change your life forever.
  7. Dreams stretch your imagination. Goals stretch you. Dreaming leads to bigger dreams. They stretch the limits of your imagination. But, goals stretch you. They increase your skills, your abilities, and change you forever.
