Fix Body Group’s soft tissue specialist Jonathan Pierce had the privilege of being contracted to work on the elite runners who travelled from all over the world for the Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 marathon. He had a busy few days treating athletes from Japan, Kenya, Ethiopia, the U.S., and Zimbabwe as they completed final preparations for the race. Treatments were focused on fine-tuning muscle tightness and aches the athletes had, and helping them improve circulation, blood flow, and flexibility after all the travel. Many athletes arrived only 3 days before the race, and after long travel, thus the need for optimal recovery and optimizing their bodies.
The elite half race this year was incredible, as it featured a blazing fast start on the men’s side, and a tactical nail-biter on the women’s. Congratulations to Bernard Koech on running the fastest time ever on U.S. soil in 58:41. Bernard is a great character, funny, quick-witted and immensely talented. He might break the world records for either the half or full this year it seems.
See you out next year for SD Rock ‘n’ Roll!
