Bloomsday 2018 Fun!

Participating in the Spokane Bloomsday 2018 race was totally worth the less than $25 it cost to enter it! Totally worth the 3.5 hours to drive there. Totally worth the sore muscles.  It’s really like a 7.46 mile progressive party with a new choir or band entertaining you every little bit, friendly people offering you water or even free frozen otter pops, ice, , cooling sprays from their hoses, doughnuts, cheers, smiles and countless other gestures of goodwill to “The Bloomies”. The best part was sharing it with my daughter.  You can see we met up with several friends at the end which was the icing on the cake.  By the way my Samsung Health app was off on the distance by 25% instead of a mere 10% or less as I had expected.  It could be that I didn’t have all the settings correct.  One of my Achilles tendons pops a protest to my run every now and then but the smiles far outweigh the soreness.  The happiness was worth the huffing and puffing!  Lets do it together next year!

Health Increases Wealth.

Hello again all you therapeutic people! It has been a long time! Good to see you again!

What are your health goals? I am training for the 12k race in Spokane, WA this coming Sunday. I am excited to be running it with my daughter. I could hardly believe it last week when I ran that distance in 1:11 using my Samsung Health app on my phone. That could be in error by as much as 10% but likely not by more than that. It actually was the first time I had run 7.5 miles with only brief stops to take some sunrise photos. If I were typing this from my phone I would include some here but that will have to come later.

Following “Life’s Little Instructions”

It's therapeutic to have a buddy!

I think that “Life’s Little Instructions” that I referred to in my previous post, could have said to ” Have a Dog OR have a cat. We have a dog and the dog has a cat. Our dog “Daisy” is practicing to be a mommy dog so indeed if her pedigreed pups come out healthy we’ll REALLY be following “Life’s Little Instructions”.  Scott Van Niekerk’s cash physical therapy clinic  is staffed by awesome physical therapists and two dogs that wag and lick any willing patient. The dogs are part of the ambience of the clinic. I do housecall PT so being nice to my patients’ dogs is therapeutic for me and I think the patients appreciate it too. In case you’re interested in an awesome golden retriever puppy you can visit my dog training facebook page which mostly stars our golden retriever.  This will give you an idea of how nice a healthy golden retriever can be to own.


“Lead or Get off the Pot!” / Advice from the “Throne Room”

While taking a little “personal time” a while back I looked up at “Life’s Little Instructions” framed on the bathroom wall and read, “Use the good dishes.  Live life as an exclamation and not an explanation.  Have a dog.”   I apply that wisdom by eating in the dining room twice daily, celebrating EVERY accomplishment and yes by having a dog.  Our sweet as honey dog has more than enough wags, snuggles, and love to go around for our whole family and more.  She definitely is “therapeutic”.   Having her has also taught me the importance of being a consistently good leader.  Good dog training has kept her from jumping up and breaking grandma’s hips.  You’ve got to be the leader!   The reward is being able to say like Pat Croce, PT, “I Feel GREAT!”.  When you feel great that will automatically transfer to not only your dog but also to those you care about including your customers and potential customers.

Why Am I Sleeping in a Castle?

Ever slept in a castle?  Was it made of great stones or blankets and chairs on the living room floor as mine were on Saturday afternoons when I was a young boy.

I’ve seen and visited a lot of castles in Europe but the one I resided in a while back in Oregon was incredible.  You might think that the owners would be some high falutin’ snobby hard folks but they are just as warm and friendly as the owners of my blanket castles.

I’m typing this from the great room looking at the tallest trees to the left and rear of the picture as I type.  Hopping bunnies, purring kitties, licking dogs, and curious chickens guard the perimeter.  Everyone here is friendly.

So what’s the moral of the story?  As you know I practice and teach about cash based physical therapy. You also probably have figured out that I take a lot of long vacations.  I pay for many of the accommodations and fees but many of them are free and this is how the accommodations have been the last two nights.  My gracious hosts have a stucco sprayer small business providing equipment that makes it a lot quicker to apply stucco than by trowel.   It is approximately twice as fast to use their equipment to apply plaster and stucco than to do it by trowel.   Now if you have a great way with patients and good techniques to get people better faster and more permanently people will pay for it.  Don’t be ashamed to ask for money if you’re providing a great service.  Once you’ve done it once it’s easier the second time.   When blessings come your way do be sure to pass them on in other ways.   Great hospitality is certainly a good way to do this.
