Gabe Grunewald Is The 2017 Game Changer Of The Year

The people have spoken: the 2017 Game Changer of the Year presented by T-Mobile is Gabriele Grunewald.

Easily the most inspirational athlete of 2017, Grunewald completed an outdoor season while battling her fourth bout with cancer in eight years, ending her season in the first round of the USA Outdoor Championships in the 1500m.

In March, Grunewald received heartbreaking news. The cancer was back in her liver, this time in the form of several tumors. Hearing the news didn't deter her from training, as she powered through long runs and tough workouts even while she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

There are people who run tough, and then there is Gabe Grunewald — the toughest one of us all.

On behalf of T-Mobile and FloSports, Gabe will receive $7,000 to continue her athletic journey. Gabe is inspiring athletes all over the world, and we can’t wait to see how she continues to change the game in 2018!

Each nominee — Hunter, Eliud, and Mondo — will take home $1,000 just for being nominated and for truly being a game changer! Thanks to all who voted and a big thank you to all of those inspirational athletes changing the game.

Understanding Resting And Maximum Heart Rate

Throughout the past years, business has combined the health and technology industries to create a society where fitness tracking has become a regular pastime. People have become more invested in their health and want fun devices to assist in that. These smartwatches and apps have made it easier than ever to know what your exact heart rate is, how many hours of sleep you get, or how far you run. However, with all the knowledge presented to you, it’s equally important to actually understand what those numbers mean to best achieve all of your fitness goals. A big part of this is knowing the different active and resting heart rate zones. 

Pre-Run And Post-Run Stretches

Stretching before and after your run can add a lot of benefits to your exercise routine. It allows you to warm up your muscles and safely progress into your run and also provides your body time to cool off and continue to activate your muscles. It’s important to set aside a couple of minutes before and after exercising so you can make sure you’re taking proper care of your body. 

The History Of Track And Field

Track and field has been around since the start of the Olympics in Ancient Greece in 776 B.C. It was created alongside religious events and celebrations for the Greek gods where men (no women were allowed) could show off their athletic abilities. From there it spread to the Romans who continued the games until the Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned them in 394 A.D. because of their ties to pagan beliefs.
