Go the Distance runner Mathew Menke meets with trainers

Our Go the Distance runners are meeting with their trainers for the first time.

WPSD, along with Atlas Physical Therapy and the Paducah Athletic Club, are helping the 10 runners who want to complete a half marathon this year.

Mathew Menke met with the personal trainers at Atlas Physical Therapy.

They watched him run and recorded video to help prepare him for the half marathon.

They took the time to focus on the perfect stretches for his body.

“So, one of the biggest things, the most important things, here at Atlas: We want to make sure is that we spot exactly what their weaknesses and strengths might be and try to accommodate their stretching and running accordingly.” Personal trainer Mollie Sawyer said.
