A Running Hit:
Local 12 Creates Another Great Spot for the Race

Local 12 news anchors Cammy Dierking and Bob Herzog joined Ronald McDonald, Olympian Julie Isphording and five fun-loving children to create the new television spot for the holiday run. Behind the scenes, it was a little difficult for producer Dana Holt to get Ronald M. to run in those shoes — SHOES! However, the kids liked seeing the performance and loved talking about the new kid's run. Ronald managed to stay on his feet for the feat! Of course, Cammy and Bob were rock stars, too.

Come perform a feet of you own. It's show time… and run time! Register today.

What are some strange ways stress can affect your body?

"Stress can do some unique things to your body, affecting it in various places," said Dr. Brian Grawe from UC Health.

  • Muscles and joints
    "Stress can cause pain, tightness or soreness in your muscles, as well as spasms of pain," said Grawe. "It can lead to flare-ups of symptoms associated with arthritis, cramping and other conditions. That's because stress lowers your threshold for pain."
  • Heart and lungs
    "Too much of the stress hormone cortisol may make heart and lung conditions worse," said Grawe. "These conditions include heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and asthma. If you have pain or tightness in your chest or heart palpitations, see a doctor as soon as possible to rule out a serious condition."
  • Gut
    "Stress really shows in your digestive system — from simpler symptoms such as pain, gas, diarrhea and constipation to more complex conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux (GERD)," said Grawe.
  • Shoulders, head and jaw
    "We call this the 'tension triangle.' Stress can trigger tension headaches, tightness in the neck and jaw, and knots and spasms in your neck and shoulders."
  • Immune system
    "You need a strong immune system to fight disease, but stress weakens your body's defenses," said Grawe. "It makes you more likely to catch colds or the flu, for example."

Are you icing that injury all wrong?

"During the healing phase of any injury, heat should be avoided," said chiropractor Dr. Steve King from Mt. Lookout Chiropractic. "However, many people don't know how to use an ice pack as effectively as they can." Try these tips:

  • Apply ice/cold pack 2-3 times daily.
  • It's best to ice according to this schedule: 20 minutes on/20 minute off/20 minutes on.
  • Icing for longer than 20 minutes at a time can cause damage to the tissue or even frostbite.
  • Make sure the area is warm to the touch before beginning the second round of icing.
  • Never place ice pack directly on your skin (unless you're performing a moving ice massage). Always have a thin towel in between the ice pack and your skin.
  • Continue icing for the duration of your treatment plan, especially after activity.

  • Hiking grew 7.9 percent

  • Swimming for fitness expanded 13.4 percent
  • Stand-up paddling grew 116.9 percent
