Weekly Wag

Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.

The Dashing Whippets Running Team thanks our 2017 Partners for their generous support: NY Custom PT & Performance, Upper East Orthopaedics PC, RunnerClinicNYC, Body Balance Integrated Massage Therapy, SDL Performance Chiropractic, Bauer Dental Arts, Dr. Lori Weisenfeld, DPM, Dermalmedix, and Brooklyn Roasting Company.

From the team blog:

  • A special thanks to Jerlyn Thomas, who has managed the blog, the team site, and much of our social media and is stepping down. Her contributions have really helped the growth of the team over the last 2 years.
  • An article from our sponsor, Dr. Rosen on taking hip pain seriously: http://www.dashingwhippets.org/2017/03/21/take-hip-pain-seriously/
