Siobhan and colleagues from the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapy volunteering at The VHI Women’s mini-marathon. Once finished runners enter the Wellness Arena to cool down and recover. Using mats, foam rollers and tennis balls, tight muscles and sore feet are gently massaged and stretched to ease any soreness and help recovery. It’s an emotional day with people running after serious illnesses, to raise money for charities and in memory of lost loved ones. The weather was beautifully warm and windy, families and friends relaxed and chatted afterwards in the beautiful Merrion Square Park. “A special event good for the soul”, said Siobhan
