Marine Corps Marathon October 28th,2012

 The Ultimate Sports Massage Team was on hand at the 2012 MCM partnering with 2 separate charities this year: The Semper Fi Fund & Hope 4 the Warriors.  We provided sports massage for the participants at the end of the Marathon.  We dealt with hand cyclists, 10K runners and able bodied runners for the full 26.2 miles.

 Hurricane Sandy was fast approaching but did not effect the marathon for the most part.. nor did it affect the way we provided the post event sports massage services.

We did deal with a few cold related post marathon issues -- muscle cramping, hyperthermia etc... nothing life threatening but still caused us to be "on alert" for anything.  I say this because anything can happen with our wounded warrior athletes after an intense physical activity like this.   For our hand cyclists ... it was shoulder issues... lots of it!  We laughed a lot when our wounded warrior athletes commented that they never receive massage like this.. that's all I'm going to say on that!  (for those of you who really know me... you know why)

 What a great experience again and both charities were extremely grateful for the care and attention we provided to all the athletes running or hand cycling to support the mission... raise awareness to our military and support them in their recovery.

As always ~ we did our job!!

Always & with the Glitter!!
