Runners set afoot in downtown Greenville on this day (4-22-17) to run the TD Bank Reedy River race. Among them was Dr. Hart, who finished 253 out of 1000 runners, with an average time of 9:24 per mile.

A recently published study by Dr. Hart pertains to a group of patients who were trained to take their own resting pulse rate (RPR). The RPR, as a neurological measure, was compared before versus after spinal adjustment. The study was published in the peer-reviewed publication, the Internet Journal of Neurology. Here is the citation with a link where the full paper is available for free:

The manager at the Oglesby Post Office branch in Greenville recently invited Dr. Hart to give a presentation of back safety and spinal health. Hart covered some of the usual risk factors involved in physical labor as performed at the Post Office. He also covered the good news - that workers can help themselves get stronger, with exercise, and getting checked for subluxation, and adjusted if need-be.
The Greenville Health System's Swamp Rabbit 5k run happened on a cold, rainy, and windy evening in Travelers Rest (on 5-5-17). Dr. Hart placed 609 out of 3600 runners.

In this race on 8-5-17, for a good cause, Dr. Hart won second place in his age category, with a 5k time of 28:25. Race results are available at: https://itsabouttime.run/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/run2overcomeresults17.htm
Dr. Hart has an article on resting pulse rate as a measure of neurological fitness in the Fall 2017 issue of Pace Running Magazine. The article is available online at: https://pacerunningmag.wordpress.com/resting-pulse-rate/

Dr. Hart placed 9th in his age group in this race (on 1-20-18): https://georesults.racemine.com/SVE-Timing-East/events/2018/2018-Greenville-News-Run-Downtown-5K/results
Dr. Hart's case study on self-measurement of resting pulse rate in a runner has been accepted by the peer-reviewed science journal, the Journal of Biology of Exercise (Cyprus). It will be published in October 2018 or April of 2019.
A study by Dr. Hart on his patients was published this month (April 2018) in a peer-reviewed science journal.
The study found that his patients experienced a benefit beyond symptomatic improvement, namely in the form of reduced resting pulse rates (RPR). Many other studies have shown that a lower RPR is associated with better health compared to a higher RPR. For example, these other studies show that people with a lower RPR tend to live longer than their counterparts who have a higher RPR.

In last year's Reedy River Run in downtown Greenville, Dr. Hart placed 10th in his age group. This year he finished first !
Dr. Hart's new study, geared toward runners, and anyone else interested in self-monitoring their neurological fitness, was published today in the science journal, Biology of Exercise (out of Cyprus). Here is the citation with link where full PDF paper is freely available:
