The Cantrell Center is holding its 9th Annual Cantrell Center Run to Lose 5K on February 25th. This year will be the first one I get to attend as a new physical therapist here. I’m incredibly excited as I love running & races myself.
However, I’m especially excited to see past and current patients, and familiar faces from this community outside running and enjoying themselves.
The Cantrell Center focuses on recruiting runners who have never participated in a 5K before. Completing a 5K is a huge accomplishment and can be excellent motivation to gain a healthier lifestyle. This approach sets the Cantrell Center’s 5K apart from others that I’ve done. My co-workers and current patients keep talking about the race. I see more and more of them wearing Cantrell 5K shirts from previous years. There is a lot of excitement about this 5K and how it brings our Cantrell Center family together.
Feel free to say hello if you see me out there, or if you see me running on the roads training beforehand!
