Meet our Sponsor: Family First Chiropractic’s Dr. Rachel Robison

Endurance World Reno NV

     Ever had this experience?  You wake up one morning to head out for your early morning run, bike or swim workout, only to find that your body has betrayed you.  What is this?!? There’s a kink in your neck, or an ache in your lower back, or your knee and IT band feel like someone repeatedly jammed a knife into them.  Perhaps a semi-truck ran you over while you were sleeping?  Completely unacceptable, but what to do, what to do?  Don’t freak out….pick up your phone and call Family First Chiropractic!  Dr. Rachel Robison and Dr. Jack Nolle will have you fixed up and back to training, like the animal you are, in no time!

     Family First Chiropractic has been a sponsor of the Endurance Reno team for the past two years and is one of the main reasons our athletes stay healthy and injury free.  Dr. Rachel Robison was kind enough to answer some questions about her job and why she loves working with the Endurance Reno and Endurance Sparks teams.

Pro Triathlete Brandon Nied will race RENO 5000 Running Series

As the Race Director of the RENO 5000 Running Series and local coach of running and triathlon teams called Endurance Reno, Endurance Sparks and Endurance Kids (which are developmental camps for young runners and triathletes ages 5-12), I wanted to spend a moment and focus on some of our local running and triathlon talent right here in Northern Nevada!  Plenty of athletes that I coach and citizens of Reno, NV, do not realize the fountain of talent that live and train locally.

Off the couch runners and triathletes

Coach Sam

Elite runners and professional triathletes make up a minority of our population. Most people are like me with little to no athletic background, who want to lose weight and become more active. After working for several years and starting a family, I found myself overweight and out of shape. I wanted to set a better example for my children by showing them a healthy lifestyle is important and that it can be done no matter how busy you are; if you make it a priority. I wanted to live long enough to see them grow up and enjoy the families they would start. I decided to change everything in my life. I ate better and joined Endurance Reno to become active. The diet change helped me shed over 60 lbs. and I started to run with my wife which neither of us had done before. [Read more…]

Luck, Leprechauns and Lots of Lovely Run Records!

“Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity,” Lucius Annaeus Seneca once said.
