154. CrossFit and ChiroFit Team Up for Student Athletes

 Calling all middle school, high school and college athletes: It’s time to get fit! ChiroFit chiropractor Dr. Dave Crosson and CrossFit Barrington co-owners/coaches Brian Niven and Chris Bluse have joined forces to create a new summer Athletic Enhancement program to help you improve your game – whatever that game may be. Their goal is to provide a structured, safe, and properly coached program that addresses the whole athlete.
All three coaches are former college athletes: Dr. Dave Crosson played basketball, and CrossFit Coaches and Co-Owners Brian Niven and Chris Bluse were Division 1 and professional lacrosse players. Their athletic and professional experiences equip them with an exceptional knowledge base, all of which they applied in the creation of this program.
Dr. Crosson, who goes by “Dr. Dave” at ChiroFit, found CrossFit Barrington through a patient. He was immediately hooked on the diverse workouts, and has worked out there 5-6 days per week ever since. “In two years of working with CrossFit, I’ve personally seen more gains in strength and overall athletic ability than anywhere since I got out of college,” he says……

149. Go the Distance with Mom this Mother’s Day

 Flowers, shmowers! Instead of giving your mom that ‘same old’ spring bouquet this Mother’s Day, why not give her a pair of running shoes and a spot in this weekend’s Mother’s Day 5K Run/Walk ;). It’s happening Sunday morning on the streets of Barrington and it’s a fun experience you can share while helping a non-profit raise $8,000 for cancer research.

The Gateway for Cancer Research’s 3rd annual Mother’s Day 5k Run/Walk is expected to be even bigger than last year’s event.  Gateway donates 99 cents of every dollar raised towards research for cancer cures, and they’re focusing Barrington’s May 13th event on raising funds specifically for breast cancer research.
The event will begin and end at 200 Spring Street in Barrington……

330. Show Your Stuff at the Barrington Art Festival

 With more snow in the overnight forecast, I’m happy to have reason to show you this photo I took during last May’s Barrington Art Festival. Puffy clouds, bright blue skies, sleeveless shirts and, yes, Barrington’s 2011 Memorial Day Weekend Art Festival are right around the corner. Do you remember how hot it was during last year’s festival? I do! Now I’m daydreaming….about sunshine and summer fun. (sigh) Ok, I’m back. Anyway, Barrington Art Festival organizers have just started recruiting all “youth” artists who want to feature their work this year.

The company that runs Barrington’s art festival, Amdur Productions, just opened the application process for the festival’s Youth Art Division.…

Barrington Crime Scene Investigators Class

328. Barrington Crime Scene Investigators Class

 You’ve seen it on TV. The crime happens, the evidence is collected and the crime is solved, all within an hour! Let’s face it. The TV version of CSI doesn’t quite paint an accurate picture of a true crime scene investigator. But you can see, first-hand, how the pros solve crimes by signing up for a brand new class being offered by the Barrington Park District.

“CSI Barrington” classes are offered for adults and teens and start next week on Monday, February 28th.…
