Twisting Tornados Run the Cheshire Home 5K

Next Running Group Now Accepting Participants

September, 2012

Twisting Tornados, the Running Group at Pediatric Therapeutics, proudly announces its completion of a 5K event this past Sunday, September 16, 2012, in Madison, NJ.  With the therapeutic coaching of Miriam Cohen, PT, DPT, PCS  and Carrie Beiter, OT, both of whom are triatheletes, the group has trained five individuals to successfully participate in and complete 5K races.  The focus of these groups is on increasing each member’s strength and endurance while socializing and developing a love for exercise.  Participants meet once weekly for group-based training and continue their training at home following programs developed by Dr. Cohen and Ms. Beiter.  These home programs consist of a combination of various aerobic and strengthening exercises, as well as recommendations to promote healthy eating, maintain good hydration, and get optimal rest and sleep at home. 

The first group began this past February with a 5K race in May 2012 to bring the group to its completion.  The second group, ending just a few days ago, began in June 2012.  Our next group, to be held on Thursday afternoons at 3:30, will begin this week and will continue to accept new members until early October.  A 5K in Millburn, NJ has been scheduled and will bring this group to its completion at the beginning of December.  

Please contact either Miriam or Carrie at 973-635-0202, or  to find out more about the group or to sign up.   Look for future posting as to the time and specific place of the December  race, and come support our group’s efforts and amazing acheivements!
