Spine Health Workshop: Keys to Avoiding the Surgeon’s Knife by nbrwebjohn

Spine Health Keys to Avoiding the Surgeon's KnifeThursday, June 25th
8:30PM

McCarren Park Track after Thursday Night Track Workout.

Erich Anderer is proud to count himself among the first four members of NBR, having responded to a forlorn, handwritten invitation taped to a streetlight on Bedford Avenue. Thanks to NBR, he was converted from someone who had never run more than three miles consecutively in his life to a marathoner in 6 months. While not as conscientious on the track these days due to the competing orbits of work and preschool preparation, he has watched like a proud, quasi-absentee father as NBR has grown into an athletic and social juggernaut.

He is a native New Yorker and former Manhattanite, having earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Columbia University. He did his neurosurgical residency and fellowship in spine surgery at NYU Medical Center, where he maintains an academic appointment. He has written and lectured extensively on neurosurgical topics, and instructs NYU residents on brain and spinal surgery techniques. His primary practice, however, is at Maimonides Medical Center in Borough Park. He recently moved his wife and daughter from Williamsburg to Clinton Hill, which he maintains still counts as North Brooklyn. Thus, he remains active in the community and is a board member of the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn. Apparently, he has an affinity for all things North Brooklyn, not just her runners.

Dr. Anderer (Erich, whatever) will be speaking on the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and, most importantly, the prevention of spine-related pain. This includes neck pain, back pain and nerve pain in the arms and legs. Although he makes his living as a surgeon, he will spend most of the time talking about ways to avoid meeting him in an operating room. He would prefer to meet you at the Nest.

Spine Health Workshop: Keys to Avoiding the Surgeon’s Knife by nbrwebjohn

Spine Health Keys to Avoiding the Surgeon's KnifeThursday, June 25th
8:30PM

McCarren Park Track after Thursday Night Track Workout.

Erich Anderer is proud to count himself among the first four members of NBR, having responded to a forlorn, handwritten invitation taped to a streetlight on Bedford Avenue. Thanks to NBR, he was converted from someone who had never run more than three miles consecutively in his life to a marathoner in 6 months. While not as conscientious on the track these days due to the competing orbits of work and preschool preparation, he has watched like a proud, quasi-absentee father as NBR has grown into an athletic and social juggernaut.

He is a native New Yorker and former Manhattanite, having earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Columbia University. He did his neurosurgical residency and fellowship in spine surgery at NYU Medical Center, where he maintains an academic appointment. He has written and lectured extensively on neurosurgical topics, and instructs NYU residents on brain and spinal surgery techniques. His primary practice, however, is at Maimonides Medical Center in Borough Park. He recently moved his wife and daughter from Williamsburg to Clinton Hill, which he maintains still counts as North Brooklyn. Thus, he remains active in the community and is a board member of the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn. Apparently, he has an affinity for all things North Brooklyn, not just her runners.

Dr. Anderer (Erich, whatever) will be speaking on the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and, most importantly, the prevention of spine-related pain. This includes neck pain, back pain and nerve pain in the arms and legs. Although he makes his living as a surgeon, he will spend most of the time talking about ways to avoid meeting him in an operating room. He would prefer to meet you at the Nest.

Wait, why is there no brunch after this club points race? by nbrwebjohn

We here at the NBR social committee just want to let you know we haven’t forgotten about you.

Yes, we know Sunday is a club points race for the men, that everyone should be at cheering if you’re not running. But why have we not posted about the brunch? June brings 3 (yes THREEE!) club points races. So in order to not make you all tired of brunch we’re trying something a little different. Sunday’s race will not be followed by a brunch.

June2015BrunchUpdate

Instead, we’ll be doing a standard brunch next week after the mini 10k. Then after the pride run, we’ll be doing a larger evening event. A Summer Nights brunch (dunch?) that will make up for all the sad faces missing out on brunch this weekend.

Then after Team Champs in August, the best race where men and women run separately, we’ll be following that up with a Men vs Women BBQ Cook Out (in place of our standard men cook for the women and women cook for the men brunches). So stayed tuned. See we haven’t forgotten about you!

The Bins (Northside of McCarren Park Track)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Donut Kingdom,

Mishka Vertin, Donut Empress, is visiting in early June, and to honor her return we are hosting the Donut Run!

For the uninitiated, the Donut Run involves running from donut shop to donut shop, testing the spoils of this donut rich city.  The course usually covers 8-10 miles and 4 donuts.  Those who eat a full donut at each location are crowned Donut Royalty FOREVER (For-ev-er…).

We will meet at the bins at 10am, discuss our favorite things about donuts, and be on our merry ways.  Route map to come.
