In less than 5 days, more than 20,000 eager runners, and thousands more of their supporters, will be participating in the Portland Marathon -- A marathon Runner’s World called “the best people’s marathon in the West.”
Runners have been preparing for this event for months. They work hard to stay hydrated, and they carefully plan their meals to ensure their bodies have the right fuel to get them through the race. They also log countless hours of training, and if time and resources permit, they get regular bodywork to support the repair and recovery of their muscles.
In an article on Active.com, Melissa Eisler speaks with massage therapist, Mary Owen, who likens getting bodywork while training, to the regular maintenance of your car. Mary says, "It's amazing how many athletes don't even think about getting bodywork, especially when they are in season. Regular maintenance is always recommended to athletes that are consistently overworking the same muscle groups. But during those tough parts of the year, when athletes are racing, competing and doing their most rigorous training, that's when it's most important."
