Cadence Physical Therapy and Performance Coaching


Thank you, Charlie, for a total assessment of my knee. Thank God nothing major!! Always a pleasure to visit. I recommend, Cadence Physical Therapy!! Love them
I met with Charlie a couple months ago on pain I was having on the bottom of one of my feet. He gave a thorough evaluation of my current running experience, past races and events, lifestyle, flexibility, mobility, and videoed my running form. From there we discussed my future goals and he provided exercises to add to my stretch routine along with some things to work on for my form. The pain cleared up almost right away and thankfully has not come back. I would highly recommend if you are having any fitness concerns or just want to get an assessment of where you are at reach out to Charlie.
I just wanted to share a little warning about purchasing insurance through I had to withdraw from a half Ironman and I had the insurance but the insurance company they use will avoid anything to pay out. I had 2 doctors notes that were rejected but neither of them from the content of the letter. One was rejected because it wasn’t on the correct letterhead and the second one wasn’t dated. So just a warning, don’t buy the insurance if you use that site for anything.
Thanks again Charlie for treating now the other leg on my beat up body! So very appreciative of the speedy response getting me in on the next business day and always on time ( no sitting around a waiting room) Thank you for diagnosing, treating my injury, and getting me on the road to a speedier recovery than what it would have been. I look forward to getting back to your your expert coaching and this next crazy event happening in just a couple short months!
Anyone looking for a recovery ride Sunday and on the west side, it’s a half metric century and has 10 miles on the ISM raceway which should be pretty cool!

Charlie is the best! He takes the time to really understand your symptoms and then puts a customized plan in place for you. An injury is the pits but better to get it treated now so that it’s only a minor setback and not something much more difficult. Charlie’s plan will have me back running soon!

Has anyone cycled around the North Rim of the Grand Canyon area- heading up that way and thinking of trying to get a bike ride in while I’m up there but I’ve never been so not sure what to expect
Chicago Race Report: My only previous experience with Chicago was a quick business trip in mid-December and I was so cold that I thought the distance from the hotel door to the Uber door was too far. It’s funny, that used to be my very thoughts on running too, but thanks to my wife’s enthusiasm for self- torture, we went back to the Windy City for the Chicago Marathon. Here’s a few thoughts about my experience:

Training/Prep: Living in Phx means that we are usually on opposite training schedule from the rest of the country but when my wife and I were both drawn for the Chicago Marathon, we said, ok lets run through the summer so we can do this. It meant a lot of 4am runs and hot miles, but Charlie kept us motivated and accountable. I tested and liked a new fuel, Huma, (the lemonade ones are tasty) and became best friends with the Saloman S/Lab Sense Ultra 5 hydration vest. My first marathon left me beaten and broken, so this time I worked on the mental game. I spent a lot of time on the long runs practicing what I would do when things fell apart. How I would react to things being different than I planned on. More on that later. Point is, a good part of my preparation was about being prepared to combat the situation that I found myself in on marathon #1.

Days Before Race: For those people lucky enough to know and spend time in Chicago, wow, lucky you. It was beautiful. We got there a few days early and checked in the hotel with a few close friends, (Galen Rupp and crew, no big deal. Lol). Bit of advice here, stay at the host hotel for a World Major. #WorthIt. We ate deep dish pizza and took the architecture tour, we saw the bean and did general tourist stuff. The expo was the first time that I got a sense of the scale that we were dealing with, there were thousands upon thousands of people. It was massive and the first time that I started to get a feel for the logistical handling of 45k people. We attended a panel with Meb and other elite runners about all the thing’s we mortals wonder about, nutrition, training, tips, funny stories and motivation. Some time to rub shoulders with some of the greats was inspiring and we left feeling good about the upcoming run.

Race Day: Nerves, jitters, butterflies. We woke up early, of course, and walked across the street to the start gates. This is when I really began to be impressed with the organization and preparation. There was signage everywhere, volunteers and helpers all over. I didn’t know how any city could host 45k runners from a port-a-john perspective and yet, they did it. I waited for about 40 seconds for my turn and then hoped right into my wave. There was plenty of room cordoned off and despite people everywhere there was no crowing or space issues. Right before the gun, they moved some gates and we all packed in for the start. It was a cool, slight misty rain and we took off. Within the first mile there was a tunnel and I lost my GPS. I knew this might happen and told myself to not worry about it, it would catch up. It didn’t. I never got GPS back, but I just went back to my plan to not let something that I could not control ruin my race. I could see the pacers that I wanted to stay ahead of and so I just settled in and did what I had practiced for. Run some miles. It was beautiful! The course was amazing, so many spectators cheering and yelling, high fives and funny signs. It was so easy to get lost in the experience and just enjoy it.

The Run: I chunked the race in to five sections of 5 miles each.
• 0-5 The first five was all about not going too fast. Keep on pace, even without GPS, just go by feel and pacers. It was a wonderful 5 miles of beautiful scenery and awesome crowds.
• 6-10 The second five felt good, and I kept telling myself that it should feel good, don’t do anything different, just keep logging miles.
• 11-15 This is where I was worried that I would start to gas out and would repeat marathon hell #1, but I found a buddy and we talked. We pointed out cool things and funny signs. We distracted each other and then I was through 15 and feeling great.
• 16-20 After hitting 15 and feeling good I kept after it and tried not to do anything dumb. Take my fuel and drink my water, keep doing work. I distinctly felt really good through 18. I hadn’t had any of the knee pain I expected, my muscles felt good, my breathing was on point and overall, I was ahead of where I expected to feel poor. 19 and 20 started to change that.
• 20-25 From feeling great at 18 to having to really start to work at 20, this is where my race really began. This is where I was telling myself to do work. To hang in there. To not slow down. It started to really hurt. My effort went from easy to hard to very hard, in just a few miles. The pacer that I was trying to stay ahead of caught me. And passed me. I would have kicked him but didn’t have the energy or the coordination at that point, so I just kept chasing him.
• 26. I knew this didn’t fit into my neat little five-mile sections. This was the odd one out and I just kept telling myself it was a rounding error. Only a mile-ish, no problem. Lol. It was a problem. I found myself clawing at the air trying to keep my pace. It took everything I had, from one second to the next to keep going for 10 more steps. The sign that announced 400 meters to go was depressing because it was too far. Haha. It sounds silly as I write this, but at the time, 400 meters seemed like I would need a piggy-back ride to get there.

Finish Line: And then it was done. I nailed my goal, hit my pace plan and it was done.

Post Race: Chicago, you impressed. The race was amazing, outstanding organization, perfect weather, awesome crowds. It was world class, without a doubt the best race event I have ever seen. After the race I saw a lot of comments about poor weather, this sucked or that was terrible, and I am reminded of a thought from Charlie: It is what you make of it. There is only one thing that I can control in this and that’s me. I would choose Chicago Marathon again and again, because it was epic, the kind of race that I only dared dream about it. The kind of experience that I will look back on and smile about. Shared with my lovely wife, the Chicago Marathon is now my most favoritest race ever. Thank you to my coach Charlie and most of all thanks to my wife Christy, you bring life and joy. Cheers and keep running!

I’d like to give a huge shout out to Jennifer Greene for completing the D***y Challenge! For those that aren’t familiar with it, it’s a 4 day race where you run a 5k, 10k, half marathon, then a FULL marathon. Her training suffered a few setbacks but she kept on pushing all while playing it smart. Way to go Jennifer!!

We had a few athletes do an amazing thing yesterday!

Ironman Coeur d'Alene 140.6 happened in brutal heat. 100 degrees for most of the run. Very tough conditions 🔥☀️

These superstars slayed the beast and finished the race:

Lisa B. 12:50...Amazing...this is a coach's dream to write by the way....
SHE QUALIFIED FOR THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN KONA, HAWAII! the SuperBowl of Triathlon Races. She finished 8th place in her age group by racing smart and steady the whole day.
We're all super proud and happy for you Lisa! KONA BOUND!

Sean battled strong: 15:27. He's one tough guy. Overcame a mechanical issue on the bike, but he stuck with it. 💪

Carlyle did it! 16:18. The weather, nor an injury on the bike, can stop this guy from gutting it out. Impressive!
