Podcast: Treasure Coast Marathon Interviews

Welcome! and thank you for listening. 

This episode features four runners that are members of our wellness practice that have taken control of their own health and stepped into an endurance training regimen culminating in finishing the Treasure Coast half and whole marathons. 

We often hear people say, “when I get healthy, I’m going to do…”.  That day rarely comes because they are waiting for someone else or some other treatment or procedure to provide health.  What defines health and limitations is ultimately an individual perception. 

This episode features Erica Salerno Shadowens, a breast cancer survivor, Nanette Rodgers, 86 years young with valvular heart disease, Dick Willard, a colon cancer survivor, and Hutch Strahm, with coronary stents and insulin requiring diabetes.  Each have had significant “challenges” in their path to health but have chosen to use endurance training as a part of their healing. 

I hope you enjoy the chats with each of them as well as a few words from our RDN, exercise physiologist, Addie Majnaric.  Thanks also to Michael Hubbard for always supporting my efforts and always sharing a great smile across all our finish lines together.

    Dr. Jami,
    Thank you for including us in your podcast. I listened to all the interviews and the hour and s30 + minutes went quickly. I learned from everyone and was inspired by the comments. I am grateful to be a member of your Practice and thankful for your encourage, caring and support. I hope others who listened to you today will be inspired to set goals they want to accomplish and make their goals come true.
