The older I get the more I believe it is not how fast I can run or what my body is capable of doing but rather, what I am capable of recovering from.
Dr. Glass does a great job of getting me ready for a race, but even more important he keeps me healthy and increases my recovery rate so I can work in more hard days. When I misjudge things and end up hurt, Dr. Glass is always one of the key people who helps me put together a training and treatment plan to work through the injury. Simply put, I need Dr. Glass to stay fit, healthy and run at an elite level. My competition isn’t getting any older, there younger every year, I need to get smarter and Dr. Glass has the tools I need to do just that.
