Team Amp's Inspire Active Living series concludes on Wednesday Sept. 25 with a talk at the Howe Library in Hanover by Lebanon's Laura Hagley on improving running performance and preventing injury.
About Laura Hagley, DPT, CSCS, HFS Laura earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy from MGH Institute of Health Professions. She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA, and a Health Fitness Specialist through the ACSM. Laura was a competitive Division III cross country and track runner and she has since found a passion for marathons. Laura has been a member of the Upper Valley Running Club since she moved to the area in 2010. Laura's racing history includes the Boston Marathon in 2006, and she has placed in several races since then, including the Green Mountain Marathon (2nd place female 2009), MVP Health Care Rochester Marathon (2nd place female 2010), and Wallis Sands Half Marathon (1st place female 2012).
Hagley's discussion is entitled "Myths of Running and the Research Behind the Minimalist Movement." An active runner herself, Hagley will talk about myths runners accept as true that research doesn't support. Presenting current literature, Hagley plans to deliver principles that runners can use to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of injury.
The talk begins at 7 pm and is FREE and OPEN to the public. For more information on the event or series visit www.teamamp.org.
