January 23, 2022 – New Year’s Resolution #3: Increase your Physical Activity

This Sunday, January 23, 2022, as the final part of our three-part series on New Year’s Resolutions, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie will be joined by Mark Stoutenberg, PhD, MSPH, an Associate Professor Chair for the Department of Kinesiology at Temple University for a discussion about the importance of physical activity and how to increase the amount of activity you get!

A sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity are prevalent and associated with poor health outcomes. Worldwide about 1 in 4 adults are physically inactive and we’re seeing even more sedentary behaviors due to watching TV and time at the computer. Learn from a national authority about the value of physical activity, even if it’s not programmed activity or exercise in the gym. It can add years to your life!

Your Real Champion: The “Human” Race

Your Real Champion of the week is Clare Flannery!

Clare spent many exciting years as a radio and TV personality.  In her twenties, she survived several life-threatening allergic reactions and is thankful for every day since. Through the years she never liked running, but at age 55 she entered a 5K race to honor a friend’s brother, and running soon became her sanctuary. Between ages 57 and 65, she has completed 5 marathons, including New York and Boston. More important than the medals is the sense of gratitude for her health and the human connection she feels with fellow runners.

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
