Success Stories

    After finishing my latest marathon, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting and thinking about the amazing changes in my life, many of them thanks to Kjell Risuing, P.T., COMT, and Mike Wahlig, P.T., DPT, OCS, and the Select Physical Therapy running group they oversee. In the spring of 2014, I entered my first 5K race and I was barely able to finish it. I didn’t attempt another race for six months and I joined your group a year later as a last ditch effort at running.

    Fast forward to two weeks ago when I finished second place in my age bracket in the Her Tern Quarter Marathon. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think this was possible. During the race I could hear their coaching tips and advice which gave me the confidence that I needed.

    Thank you both for all your time and energy! I’m extremely grateful for your running group which is incredibly positive and has unquestionably changed my life.
