Keeping New Year’s resolutions can be hard, but the Brotherhood of Temple Judea tried to make it easier by sponsoring a presentation on “How to Run Healthily” on Sunday, March 2 at 9:30 a.m.
Congregants and interested members of the community were treated to a most informative talk given by Dr. Lewis G. Maharam, who is better known as Running Doc, which is the name of his column in the New York Daily News.
Dr. Maharam, a Temple Judea congregant, is one of the world’s foremost experts on sports medicine and running health. In addition to his sharing his extensive knowledge, which stems partly from his work with athletes in all sports, including football, soccer, and skiing, Dr Maharam answered a diverse array of questions from the audience.
Longtime runners as well as novices and those who pursue other forms of exercise later reported having learned a great deal from Dr. Maharam as he offered many practical “do’s and don’ts”. Several attendees purchased autographed copies of Dr. Maharam’s book, “Running Doc’s Guide to Healthy Running”, with the proceeds going to Temple Judea.
