Should Runners Stretch?

By James Gucciardi, D.C.

What we really should be asking is, what are your goals and would stretching be effective at helping you achieve them?  If you’re trying to prevent injury before activity, the research doesn’t support it.  As far as running is concerned, it isn’t an activity that requires your joints to go through a great range of motion anyway so you really aren’t in jeopardy of acutely tearing anything.  But if you’re a mixed martial artist that isn’t very flexible and someone starts cranking on your joints, you’re in trouble. So it would behoove you to stretch often to have and maintain appropriate flexibility. But you’re a runner, not a mixed martial artist, so the question begs… Continue Reading →

Katy’s Kinetic Korner- September

September Katy’s Kintetic Korner:

September was a big racing month for everyone on the SHW team! Congrats to everyone’s accomplishments! What a super team to be a part of as I have enjoyed watching everyone’s gains this month!! My korner this month is dedicated to learning
some serious lessons! This month I spent much time making errors and analyzing them…..probably too much. :)As the group’s lab rat, I found this month I was somewhat of my own experiment as well. Continue Reading →

Ocean to Sound Relay 2015 Recap

So the dust has finally settled on the 30th edition of the Ocean To Sound 50 Mile Relay race!! WHEW!!
This event is really a celebration of the Long Island running community. Once you have participated you never want to miss it again…ever!!!To those of you who ran the event for the first time you know you will be back next year.
We went from one Selden Hills team in 2014 to six this year. I envision twice that number next year after everyone sees all the fun we had (yes there are pics!!) running with friends, making new friends and bonding as teammates, which is a rare occurrence for road racing.
While many Selden Hills Warriors ran the race on their respective racing teams, myself included, I will focus on those 48 of us who represented the group so proudly and ably. I know this event will join the list of races we turn out in great numbers for to display our pride and have a blast doing so. Continue Reading →

Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams–Selden Hills Remix by Amanda Ciolino

During the half marathon somewhere between mile 10 and being delirious Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams was recreated to the Selden Hills “Wildest Runs” remix. Enjoy!

He said let’s get out of this town
Drive out to the Selden hills
Away from the crowds
I thought heaven can’t help me now
Nothing lasts forever
But this is gonna take me awhile
The course is so long and hilly as hell
He’s so fast and he does it so well
I can see the end as it begins, my one condition is
