A Bucket List Dream:
Runner Wants to Wear #1 and Raise $10,000 for Ronald McDonald House

Sally Chynoweth has some big bucket list dreams, among them to wear race bib #1 and to raise $10,000 for the Ronald McDonald House. "You get in life what you have the courage to ask for," said Chynoweth. "It would be a moment of rare joy to stand on that starting line knowing I accomplished something good."

If you would like to help her raise money for the Ronald McDonald House, even with $1, simply go to our charity: Ronald McDonald House and do what you can. Remember, wonderful people are made, not born. Go ahead and be one of those outrageously wonderful people who can run and make a difference.

If you have a similar goal in life and have a favorite bib number, let us know. The race bib numbers 1-10 are reserved for those who raise the most money for our race charities, not for the fast runners.

Happy Friendsgiving! It's such a good feeling. Register today.

What are some of the benefits of physical therapy?

  • Avoid surgery.
    "If physical therapy helps you eliminate pain or heal from an injury, surgery may not be needed," said Dr. Brian Grawe from UC Health. "And even if surgery is required, you may benefit from a course of 'prehab,' physical therapy before surgery to help you recover faster."
  • Reduce or eliminate pain.
    "Joint and soft tissue mobilization or treatments such as ultrasound, taping or electrical stimulation can help relieve pain and restore muscle and joint function to reduce inflammatory pain. Such therapies can also prevent pain from returning," said Grawe. 
  • Recover from a sports injury.
    "Physical therapists understand how different sports can increase your risk for specific types of injuries," said Grawe. "They can design appropriate recovery or prevention exercise programs to ensure a safe return to your sport."
  • Manage age-related issues.
    "As individuals age, they may develop arthritis or osteoporosis or need a joint replacement," said Grawe. "Physical therapists are experts in helping patients recover from joint replacement, and manage arthritic or osteoporotic conditions conservatively."

How can you keep running and walking for the rest of your life?

  • Find joy in running at your own speed.
    We all slow down as we age. Rats! Don't measure yourself against a clock. It's more fun to simply run, walk and play like a kid again.
  • Take care of yourself.
    A day off work. A vacation. A nap. These all might seem like indulgences, but the key to staying healthy is to "gift yourself" every day. This will help you deal with stress, fatigue and injuries.
  • Be social.
    Run and walk with others when you can. People of all ages and sizes are a powerful support network providing energy, inspiration and motivation.
  • Go to running/walking events.
    The camaraderie and spirit of an event will keep you excited and inspired. Start a Thanksgiving family tradition at the W&S Thanksgiving Day 10k or help find a cure for pediatric brain cancer at Sophie's Angel Run. Your steps really matter!
  • Listen to your heart.
    Learn to rely on your body's signals rather than some predetermined "rule." If you are exhausted, give yourself a break and break a rule. If you are too tired, take a nap instead.

What are five vegetables that don't deserve so much attention?

You really can't go wrong with vegetables, but some pack a bigger nutritional punch than others. Here are the veggies that dietitians downplay.

  • Sweet corn
    It is one of the starchiest veggies out there. The body sees sweet corn similar to the way it sees bread.
  • Kale
    While kale is great, variety is even better. Spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, arugula, red and green leaf lettuce, and romaine contain nutrients that are similar. Also, many people struggle to digest kale.
  • Vegetable juices
    Store-bought vegetable juices may give you a good amount of vitamins and minerals, but you're missing all the benefits of the fiber and extra nutrients found in their skins.
  • Iceberg lettuce
    This pale lettuce falls short of its darker-hued cousins and contains fewer vitamins and nutrients.
  • Potatoes
    While potatoes contain fiber and potassium, they cause a much faster spike in blood sugar levels than non-starchy vegetables like broccoli, spinach and cauliflower.
