'Getting to know and train with other participants through Team 13 made it all the more satisfying to watch them achieve their goals on race day.' - Mindy Riley

ProRehab’s expert therapists and Certified Athletic Trainers were proud to provide medical support and participate in the YMCA Evansville Half Marathon on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

During the race, ProRehab staff members offered hydration to participants from their first-aid tent, where runners could also seek medical attention pre- and post- race for issues like dehydration, cramping, and joint aches and pains. Additionally, six ProRehab therapists participated in the half marathon.

In addition to providing support at the race, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, leading up to the October 4th race, members of Team 13 met at various locations throughout the city to train and prepare. Several of ProRehab’s therapists participated in the training sessions, providing bike support, first aid, and hydration to participants during the longer runs. Additionally, ProRehab staff members ran formal seminars on injury prevention, health and safety while training for the race, and helped check team members for injury.

“I’ve participated in the Evansville Half Marathon for five years now, but this year’s half marathon was especially fulfilling,” said Mindy Riley, PT, DPT, MTC, CSCS, ProRehab physical therapist, and participant in this year’s half marathon. “Getting to know and train with other participants through Team 13 made it all the more satisfying to watch them achieve their goals on race day. I know I speak for the entire staff at ProRehab when I say we look forward to getting back out there again next year, and for many years to come!”
