My Run Story
In 2014 I could hardly run 5K. I was hurting and it was not pretty. It shaped my decision not to run longer distances. But I had 2 motivated people in my fitness life: one who asked to join for weekly runs in the park (so I did) and another one made a joke (and planted a seed of possibility in my head) to run 10K.
Soon enough I ran 5K formal run and finished 6th in my category. I was hurting. But I didn’t stop running; I had regular runs and work outs. In 2016 I tired a formal 10K run (“I Am Second”); why not; just a few more miles. I finished 6th in my category.
In mid December of 2016 I created my first dream/goal board. I put “Half Marathon” in it as just for fun. Why not It is a dream board after all. On January 1st 2017 my family ran Commitment Day 5K at our local gym. As soon as I completed the run, a sign caught my eye: ‘every day is leg day – Half Marathon 12-week Training.” I registered. In 3 months, with a proper training, some minor body adjustments, support #teamnoexcuses, I moved up from 10K to 13.1 mile.
On March 19th 2017 I ran 13.29 mile Rock and Roll Half Marathon with a 10 min per mile and finished at 2:10:49. My coach said, ‘your first half was faster than my first half! I think it’s a testament to your overall healthy lifestyle, and you train to be much more than just a runner. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing you at the finish line of a full marathon in 2017.”
My Shaklee Sport Nutrition Testimonial (for runners)
I was smart on how to treat and supplement my body. I knew Shaklee had been providing support for over 136 Olympic medalists. Shaklee created AstroAid for astronauts in 1993 and has powered 7 out of 25 world ventures. It’s gotta work for me!
- Few months up to a week before the run. 7 Days Healthy Cleanse or 5×5 Reset diet. To help lose unnecessary weight, help digestion and natural energy production, cleanse your body from toxins. It’s a great foundation to build your strength and training on.
- 2 days before the run until 2 days after the run, I took 2/day Join Pain Complex to help with joints, 2/day Omega Guard and 10/day Alfalfa to reduce possible inflammation. A day before I also used a carbohydrate diet.
- A morning of the run. Right after wake up, glass of lemon water. 5 min strength exercise and stretching. 8 ounces of Performance. Energy tea upon desire. Oatmeal and 180 Meal Bar.
- During the run. 9 ounces of Performance was enough to keep me hydrated (sipped on every half a mile) so I didn’t need to slow down for water stations. I had 2 Energy Chews in my pocket and used one during the run.
- Right after the run. 18 ounces of water. One banana.
- An hour after the run. Big nutritious lunch.
- Upon arrival home (2 hours after the run). Cool tub to help reduce inflammation. Joint and Muscle Pain Cream. 6 ounces of Performance.
- And of course, Vitalizer was my regiment along the way!
I know I was able to find the EDGE because I treated and supplemented my body to the full potential. I know with Shaklee I can do it all in my lifetime!

There is nothing worse than shoulder pain. It hurts every time you try to lift your arm. Is there anything you can do to quickly relieve shoulder pain?

Shoulder Pain Relief
What Causes Shoulder Pain And How Do You Treat It?
Author: Julie Donnelly, LMT – The Pain Relief Expert
Editor: Dr. Stephen Chaney
Shoulder joint pain was preventing a father from throwing a baseball to his son and he was very distressed. He was complaining to a friend of his, who is a client of mine. Even though he had been recommended to go for surgery, his friend convinced him to give muscle therapy a chance. So yesterday “Frank” came in to see me.
He demonstrated throwing a ball, but he could barely lift his arm, and he definitely couldn’t bring it back. He said that his time with his son is precious to him, and that their favorite pastime is throwing a baseball. If I could just help him do that he would be happy.
Why Muscles Cause Shoulder Joint Pain
Your shoulder has more muscle attachments than any other joint in your body. A muscle pulls in only one direction, muscles never push. When you consider all the movements you can make with your shoulder and arm, you can see why there are so many muscles involved.
The important fact is when a muscle is shortened from spasms, it will cause pain at its insertion point on the bone at the shoulder joint.
The reason is evident when you consider an analogy I frequently use to describe joint pain. If you pull your hair at the end, it hurts at your scalp. However, you don’t need to massage your scalp, you don’t need to take aspirin for the headache, and you definitely don’t need brain surgery! You just need to let go of your hair!
The exact same thing is true to stop your shoulder joint pain. You just need to let go of the tight muscles that insert into your shoulder.
The Muscles That Cause Shoulder Joint Pain
Perhaps you’ve heard of the rotator cuff muscles: supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis. However, my experience has proven that there are a lot of other muscles that aren’t considered shoulder muscles, but that will cause shoulder joint pain. Those muscles are your biceps and triceps, your levator scapulae, and your latissimus dorsi (among others).
While not rotator cuff muscles, your biceps and triceps both originate deep within your shoulder joint. The other two muscles will move your shoulder blade (scapula). When they are in spasm, which shortens the muscle fibers, it will cause a strain to be placed on the muscle tendon, which will then cause a strain, and pain, on your shoulder joint.
How To Release Shoulder Joint Pain
There are so many muscles involved in shoulder joint pain that I couldn’t show all of them here, that’s why I wrote Treat Yourself to Pain-Free Living.
However, I do want to show you how to do one treatment, for your infraspinatus muscle.
But first, back to “Frank.” I treated each of the muscles mentioned, and then using Treat Yourself to Pain-Free Living, I showed him how to treat each of the muscles of his shoulder. He was thrilled! He could easily, and painlessly, throw a baseball. In fact, he went outside and tried it just to make sure.
The key is self-treatment. Muscles will again shorten up until you train them to be their normal, longer, length. You can’t go to a therapist as often as necessary to make the muscles return to their proper length. However, you can treat yourself every day! That’s how you really stay flexible and pain-free — frequent self-treatment.
An Easy Treatment For Shoulder Joint Pain
The following pictures are from Treat Yourself to Pain-Free Living
Step 1: To treat your left infraspinatus, put the Perfect Ball in your right hand and bring it under your arm, going back as far as you can so you are on top of your infraspinatus muscle.
Step 2: Lean into a wall. Find the “hot spot” (the spasm). You’ll know you’re on it because it will hurt.
Step 3: Stay still for 30-60 seconds, then move a little bit to roll the ball back and forth on the muscle.
Treat Yourself to Pain-Free Living will explain this further, and will give you pictures and descriptions of how to self-treat the other muscles that cause shoulder joint pain.
It just takes a little bit of direction and effort to learn how to self-treat. But, I’ve seen so many times that you CAN stop shoulder joint pain!
Wishing you well, Julie Donnelly
