DR. HARDY, MARZ AND SHANNON ARE OFF SHORTLY FOR 1+ WEEK SKIING IN BEAUTIFUL BRECKENRIDGE, COLORADO.  WE ALSO WILL SPEND 2 DAYS IN DENVER AND HAVE RENTED A CAR.  THE ALTITUDE THERE IS OVER 12,000 FEET AND THEY RECEIVE TONS OF LIGHT, FLUFFY POWDER WHICH IS WHAT REAL SKI ENTHUSIAST SUCH AS OURSELVES DIE FOR.  MY FAMILY HAS ALWAYS ENJOYED SKIING AS A SPORT AS IT SOMETHING THAT THE ENTIRE FAMILY CAN PARTICIPATE IN AND SPEND THE WHOLE DAY OUSIDE GETTING FRESH AIR, EXERCISE AND ENJOYING THE INCREDIBLE SCENERY AND THE RUSH OF SKIING DOWN AN UNGROOMED BOWL OF POWDER.  THERE IS JUST NO COMPARISON!

ALL MEMBERS OF OUR FAMILY ALWAYS WEAR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS IN OUR SKI BOOTS.  THIS NOT ONLY AIDS IN THE TRANFERENCE OF POWER FROM FOOT TO SKI BUT DECREASES FATIGUE WHILE INCREASING COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE AND ALSO DECREASES THE RISK OF INJURY.  ONCE YOU WEAR ORTHOTICS IN YOU SKIIS, SKATES, ETC YOU WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT THEM.  THE VAST MAJORITY OF PROPFESSIONAL ATHLETES WEAR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  WHY?  BECAUSE THEY WORK!

AFTER SPENDING THE DAY SKIING, A HOT TUB AND SWIM, DINNER, COCKTAIL AND A MOVIE.  USUALLY EVERYONE FALLS ASLEEP WATCHING THE MOVIE AND BEDTIME IS USUALLY AROUND 9:00 PM.  THEN WAKE UP EARLY FOR FIRST TRACKS AND REPEAT THE SEQUENCE ALL OVER TO EVERYONE'S DELIGHT.  SKI HOLIDAYS ARE USUALLY OUR BEST HOLIDAYS AND WHEN YOU RETURN YOU CAN FEEL THAT YOU HAD 6 OR 7 DAYS OF GOOD, HEALTHY EXERCISE.  IT IS A SLOW STEADY BURN BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU USUALLY EXHAUSTED IN A GOOD WAY.

WHEN MY FAMILY WAS YOUNG I HAD 2 CONDOS AT WHISTLER FOR OVER 10 YEARS.  IN FACT LLOYD NESBITT, A TORONTO PODIATRIST ALSO HAD A UNIT IN THE MARQUIS WHERE MY CONDOS WERE. WE WOULD SPEND AS MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE SUMMER AND WINTER THERE.  WE FINALLY DECIDED TO START TRYING DIFFERENT SKI AREAS BUT WHISTLER STILL HAS A SPECIAL SPOT IN OUR HEARTS.

DR. HARDY'S MOTTO HAS ALSO BEEN WORK HARD, PLAY HARD AND ENJOY THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR. AFTER MY SECOND YEAR IN PRACTICE I ALWAYS TOOK A MINIMUM OF 6 WEEKS FAMILY HOLIDAYS, BUT USUALLY 8 WEEKS.  WE ALWAYS HAVE OUR NEXT VACATION BOOKED BEFORE WE LEAVE FOR VACATION.  THAT WAY WE ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO.  THIS YEAR WE WILL BE GOING TO COLORADO, AURUBA, CHICAGO, JAPAN, AUSTRALIA, AND OUR ANNUAL 2 WEEKS IN THE THOUSANDS ISLANDS ON OUR BOAT.  WE ARE NOT SURE ABOUT THE FALL YET?  WE SHARE WITH OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.  WE ARE FORTUNATE THAT WE CAN DO THIS AS WE ARE ULTRA SUCCESSFUL.  I WAS TAUGHT TO BE HAPPY FOR ANOTHER'S SUCCESS, DON'T CRITICIZE IT BUT RATHER TRY TO EMULATE IT AND NEVER BE JEALOUS.  NEGATIVE ENERGY BEGETS NEGATIVE ENERGY AND UNFORTUNATELY THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DETRACTORS, BUT NEVER LET THIS SLOW DOWN YOUR QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE.  WE ALWAYS ARE STRIVING TO IMPROVE OUR FOOT CLINIC AS WELL AS OURSELVES AND STAFF.

AFTER A ONE WEEK HOLIDAY WE ALWAYS RETURN RELAXED, REFRESHED AND READY TO WORK HARD IN OUR FOOT CLINIC.

YOURS IN HEALTH, DR. HARDY
