On Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 PM, Dr. Ryan Griffeth from Performance & Rehabilitation Chiropractic will be at the Pulse Running & Fitness Shop conducting a workshop on how kinesiology tape can help prevent and treat the most common running injuries. We will be doing free demos of Spidertech kinesiology taping (while supplies last); Rocktape is available in store and you are also welcome to bring your own if you’d like some advice on how to get the most out of it. If you have tried kinesiology tape before and have not seen the benefits, this is a great opportunity for some hands on advice from one of the best local pros. Its also no coincidence that the clinic is just in time for some last minute touch ups before the Famous Potato Races next weekend.
This Saturday and Sunday we want to celebrate all you Moms out there! For all the wonderful things you do for your family and friends it’s your weekend to be pampered. Come into the Pulse this weekend and spoil yourself with some new running shoes and/or apparel. We will be offering 20% off* your choice of regular priced apparel or shoes.

NEW FKT Course and Contest
Its that time of year again!!! The Spring colors are taking over the foothills and the May FKT fun is under way. Because of the incredible beauty over the Watchman (trail) area during this season, the Watchman FKT & photo contest is back again this year. The run hike is a 6 mile loop along 5 Mile Gulch (creek), with ridge traversing over Watchman, and short stints on trail #6 and 3 Bears.
The “Funnest Known Time” really takes over in this contest, and while we will be rewarding the fastest mens and womens performances as usual, all entries must be submitted with a photo taken over the course.

The Runner’s Biomechanical Evaluation is an assessment designed specifically to give the runner an insight into muscle, joint, or movement dysfunction that can have a negative effect on running performance and/or lead to repetitive strain-causing injury. The ultimate goal of the evaluation is to identify movement asymmetries, muscle strength and flexibility imbalances, and joint motion restrictions that the therapist will use to design an exercise program specific to each individual runner to improve mechanical efficiency.
During the clinic, all shoes are 20% off so you can take advantage of recommendations resulting from the VGA.
