While gathering information for our recent The Dreaded Ankle Sprain story on local athlete Audrey Diener and her experience with chiropractic care in general and with Dr. David Creech specifically, we learned that Audrey is a pole vaulter. How cool is that?! Pole vaulting is one of those sports that takes place in slow motion in the mind – elegance suspended in mid-air. Like the slam-dunk. When asked how Audrey came to be a pole vaulter, we expected to hear an inspirational story about seeing it in the Olympics or her grandmother was a pole vaulter. Instead, Audrey’s mother, Karla, told Active Alex, “We were looking for a winter sport.” We LOVE it!!! THAT is what it’s about – looking at all the options for staying active. So now we’re working on a story for our next issue with Spencer Frame of Kinesis Dynamic Athletics who is operating out of Athletic Lab in Cary. Coach Frame is one of the area’s few pole vault coaches, and this is a wide-open athletics opportunity. Active Alex can’t wait to tell you all about it!
