8 Tips for Junior Runners – August 17, 2018

Charlie Arnott is just 13 years old but for two years running, she’s won the Open Division, Female category in the 3km Pub2Pub event from Mona Vale to Newport and is the current defending Champ. When asked what motivates her to run, Charlie’s mum Jen answers: “She just genuinely loves being fit and leading a healthy lifestyle.” Apparently her love for running started during Cross Country events at school. Charlie and her friends used to just walk the course together, but one year Charlie decided she was going to run instead. Without any training in the lead up to the race, she won it and decided then and there that this was something she loved doing. For a 13 yearRead more…

Mona Vale Vets are running the 2018 Pub2Pub for Assistance Dogs Australia – August 10, 2018

“Seeing first-hand the joy and happiness that this beautiful dog called ‘CeeJay’ brings to this young boy, convinced us that Assistance Dogs Australia is a cause worth supporting”, said Dr Jenny Wingham, one of three partners at Mona Vale Veterinary Hospital. A chance meeting with a family at the Pub2Pub Finish Festival led to Jenny’s comment. The family’s young boy has severe autism, but CeeJay the Assistance Dog has turned his life around. “The bond between boy and dog has honestly helped this youngster to ‘find his words’, says Jenny. “We’ve stayed in touch with the family ever since meeting them at the Pub2Pub.” The practice has a team of 14 including six Vets and a veterinary nursing and supportRead more…

From 10 to 110… Sanfilippo’s ‘Big Feet & Little Feet’ Pub2Pub Team keeps growing – August 9, 2018

The most common conditions reported by runners are patellofemoral pain and plantar fasciitis. In this article, BeachLife Physiotherapy describes some of the common causes of pain in runners and provides strategies you can use to prevent them. Patellofemoral pain also known as “runners knee” is characterized by irritation and inflammation of the underside of the patella.
