Kudos! November Wellness Champion

This month we want to recognize Kathryn Crowther, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the English Department, Perimeter College Clarkston Campus, for her participation in EDWS’ “Wellness on Wheels” program and her completion of the 2019 Chicago Marathon! Kathryn trained diligently and made use of EDWS Health Coaching services in preparation for the event. She had the following to say about her experience:

Running the Chicago Marathon was an amazing experience. The course was flat, and the weather was cool, so after training in hilly Atlanta during the summer, it felt great!  I loved seeing the sights of the city, and the crowd support was incredible.  Best of all, I felt strong and well trained. I worked with Ryan and Tony in the weeks leading up to the race to make sure I was fueling my body with the proper nutrition and using strength-training to help prevent injury. As a result, I came into the race well-nourished and strong; I didn’t “hit the wall” at mile 20 like so many runners because I had fueled correctly in the weeks and days leading up to the race, and I finished uninjured and recovered fast due to the strength I had built up during training. All in all, it was a fantastic day. I’m grateful to Ryan and Tony for their advice and support!”

Kudos to you and your accomplishment, Kathryn!
