Richmond is an awesome city to get out doors and exercise. Back before I had kids, I used to run a lot. My wife and I lived right off the course of the Monument Avenue 10k, so I would run the course a few days a week. I ran in the race from 2007-2010 (I placed #3567 in 2010!).
I’m a lot slower now…
Four little kids means no time to train!
When you’re training, you want to try to perform your best. If your nose is congested, you’re not going to be moving air efficiently and your performance may suffer. If you’re training for the Monument Avenue 10k or any of the other races in central Virginia this spring, here are some tips to help you breathe better!
If your nose is crooked or if you broke it in the past, you may have a structural problem like a deviated septum. Nasal strips may still help to a point and you may get some benefit from the medicines discussed above. However, if you want to really be at your peak level of performance for the Monument Avenue 10k, you might consider coming to see me. I love straightening out crooked noses. They look better, and they work better too!
Two months post-op
This former cheerleader couldn’t breathe for years after kneeing herself in the face during a tumbling routine. After we straightened her out, her breathing was much improved! For other examples, check out my photo gallery.
