Horse Race / Shootout
Thursday, June 5 & June 19 at 5:00 PM
Cost: $5 per person
This event is a great time! It’s almost full contact golf as
your competitors egg you on, sometimes in your backswing.
Two-person teams alternate their shots while the high-scor-
ing teams are eliminated on each hole until there are only
three teams left. Out of those three teams, we will award
a “Win” (1st Place), “Place” (2nd Place), and a “Show” (3rd
Place). Serious golfers should leave their sensitive side at
home for this event; we like to have fun!

Rick and Kris Oakley
Hailing from Long Beach, California, Rick and Kris
Oakley moved to Sun City Festival July 2013. For the
last fve years, they had visited Festival every year
during Spring Training, so when Kris retired in 2013,
they didn’t have to think twice about moving here. For
them, it is paradise! The lifestyle is fabulous, everyone
is friendly, and they have made so many wonderful new
friends.
Rick and Kris have been married for 12 years and have
four children together and three dogs. They met at his
restaurant, Claim Jumper, when one of Kris’s friends
thought they would make a good couple and introduced them.
Rick has been in the restaurant industry his whole life, including management
positions at California Pizza Kitchen, Universal Studios, CBS Studios, and Claim
Jumper. He is currently employed as manager at El Encanto Restaurant in Cave Creek.
Kris started her career at Rockwell International as a Project Manager for the Space
Shuttle program. Her next job was managing testing for Pacifc Bell Video Services,
the frst wireless cable service in Southern California. She ended her working career
as an Executive Assistant at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.
Rick is active in the Softball Club. In his spare time, he loves to ride his bike and play
his drums. Kris is a member of the Social Committee, Player’s Club, Bowling team (the
last time she bowled, they were manually setting up the pins!), and likes to participate
in the Blue Star Mothers program. They would like to explore and engage in more
activities here.
The Oakleys attend services at The Church of Sun Valley. They enjoy traveling, eating
great food, and love sports, especially baseball. Kris’ passion is going to Las Vegas to
gamble.

News
We are all told how much and how hard we are supposed
to exercise: aerobic exercise for more than 30 minutes most days of the week, and
strength training three times per week not on consecutive days. But, we are never
told about how much recovery we should have, and why.
Post-exercise recovery is important to help the
body repair exercise-induced damage. Without
proper recovery, the body will not get stronger and reach higher levels of ftness. In
addition, inadequate recovery can lead to repetitive-stress injuries, joint damage
and other issues.
In order to elicit a higher level of strength and ftness, exercise purposefully dam-
ages tissues in the body. This creates an acute response of infammation and
production of hormones and chemicals to repair the damage. This is also what
creates pain and soreness after exercise. The bad news is all of us have a limited
ability to recover from the physiological stresses of exercise. When stress outweighs
recovery, the body begins to break down. Diminished recovery can be affected by
exercise volume, poor nutrition, emotional stress and lack of sleep.
Symptoms of overstressing the body include decreased muscle strength and in-
creased muscle soreness, chronic feelings of excessive fatigue, weakened immune
system, irritability and depression, and repetitive stress injuries (pain, swelling,
tendonitis) around one or multiple joints.
Proper recovery is not always as simple as a day, or two,
of rest. Adequate sleep, 7-8 hours each night, is critical.
During sleep, growth hormone helps repair tissue damage,
infammatory chemicals are reduced and the nervous sys-
tem returns to a more relaxed state.
Active recovery makes the heart pump at higher-than-rest-
ing levels and below high-exertion levels. Through increased circulation, non-impact
forms of exercise at low exertion levels for 30 minutes have been shown to reduce
infammation and help the body recover on a day following an intense exercise ses-
sion.
Passive recovery is as simple as rest after intense exercise. “Nonac-
tive” recovery involves various external things. Cold therapy is great to
reduce swelling and infammation and to alleviate pain. Heat therapy
tends to work best the day, or days, after an especially challenging workout. Heat
therapy reduces muscle soreness and releases tight muscles. Additional modes
of “nonactive” recovery include manual therapy (massage) and compression gar-
ments. Compression garments assist venous return to help minimize risk of blood
clots and improve clearing of byproducts created during intense exercise.
When it comes to recovery from intense exercise, every person is different. Of criti-
cal importance is to include plenty of recovery as part of a ftness program.
