Also, to help participants train and race injury-free, we have been hosting a running-specific mobility and strengthening class in order to decrease chances of injury and help improve performance. The class is held twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and, while we have been training since early July, anyone who would like to work on their running performance is welcome to join us. Classes will be held up until race weekend, so you still have plenty of time to join. While G3 loves to cater to the over-40 patients to assist them in aging well, we are also passionate about helping anyone of any age with their athletic performance. We want G3 to not only be a place for recovery, but also a place for continued improvement. At G3, we believe in a comprehensive, preventive approach to health and well-being. As our patients know, G3 holds strong to the idea that true health is only achieved when movement along the three planes of motion is paired with nutrition and mindfulness. G3 is a place where people can gather and give of themselves to grow their minds, bodies, and spirits. Our participation and promotion of America’s Finest City Half-Marathon is only a small example of our dedication to our patient’s wellness. We strive to give our patients the tools they need to succeed in their journey to health, and this half-marathon is a step in the direction of wellness. We are also hoping to hold a nutrition and half-marathon workshop to educate our patients on proper nutrition and half-marathon performance. We do not have any dates set in stone, so stay tuned for more information! You can find more information and register for America’s Finest City Half-Marathon at afchalf.com. Once you register, contact our office or go to our website at g3.life to join our team. We hope you choose to run with us!

This year marks the 40th annual America’s Finest City Half- Marathon, which is a run on a scenic, point-to-point course. To promote health and wellness, G3 will be sponsoring a clinic team, where team members (patients and staff) can participate in different training exercises and activities leading up to the half-marathon and then race under the G3 name. The race takes place on August 20 and starts at the historic Cabrillo National Monument at the top of Point Loma. While competing, runners will enjoy scenic views of San Diego Bay, the Pacific Ocean, Harbor Island, Embarcadero, the Star of India, Downtown San Diego, and Balboa Park. This race will also be the third and final race in the Half-Marathon Triple Crown series! We already have team members at G3 signed up for the race, including my wife, Alex, Brittaney, and Jason, and we are hoping to encourage some of our patients to get involved as well. We have had T-shirts made specifically for the half-marathon training program, and if you choose to join our team, we will provide you with a T-shirt and water bottle!
