Race and Be Happy: How the Hagens Are Staying Healthy

Category: cincinnati dentist, dental health

staying healthy at hagen dentalWe talk a lot about total health, and part of that is maintaining healthy habits that include exercising regularly.

Exercising, or finding physical training of some kind, can help us control weight, keep us in shape, combat disease, boost energy, promote sleep, and it can also provide a way for us to socialize and work on completing a goal.

Those are all positives in terms of our total health and well-being!

Training for an upcoming race can show us just how capable our bodies really are when it comes to achieving goals we set for ourselves.

Right now, the Hagen family is in-training for two races: Dr. Hagen will be participating in the Sunflower Revolution Ride in September, and Jenny Hagen will be running in the Columbus Marathon (by Nationwide Children’s Hospital) in October.

The Sunflower Revolution Ride

The Sunflower Revolution Ride, taking place in Yeatman’s Cove at Sawyer Point Park here in Cincinnati, Ohio, will benefit the Gardner Family Center for Parkinson’s Disease. “Riding for research, treatment, and a cure for Parkinson’s disease is what it’s all about. The Sunflower Revolution is making it fun to do so,” says the website. Also according to the website, more than $40,000 has already been raised for the cause!

Jenny is training for a 26.2-mile race (a marathon) that will take place in Columbus, Ohio. It’s been called “the most meaningful marathon in country,” because each mile is actually dedicated to a “Patient Champion.” This means each mile presents a new story, a new inspiration, and another reason for runners to keep running! There will also be 1 Angel Mile to honor the children who have already run their race, and 1 Encore Mile featuring all the patients who have lined the course since 2012. What’s great is that the marathon will also benefit Nationwide Children’s.

Dr. Hagen and Jenny have been quite busy with training this Summer as they prepare to take on the physical and mental challenges of these two races.
