Running Form

What’s with all this talk running form?  Is it really critical to running?  Maybe.  Here’s my take on it with 40 years of running experience.

I think form is important – to a point.  And that point is if you want to be an elite runner, then maybe you should focus on form.

To the Newbie

During the warmer months, folks come outside in droves.  People are on the bike paths, in the parks, the woods, and on the streets.  People are motoring along on bikes, rollerblades and skateboards. 

And for some, now seems like the perfect time to take up running.  They are encouraged by the warm air, the sun, the breeze, and just plain being outside.

It’s true. I’m a runner. I am not a basketball player. I am not a soccer player. I don’t enjoy trying to hit a ball being thrown at me super fast with a bat. Not my thing.

And maybe running is not your thing.

Revitalize Your Running

There is something to be said for the well worn path.

How many of us have been running the same routes at the same pace for years? I know I have.

Are you feeling bored with your running routine?  Lacking the energy to stay motivated?  Caught in the doldrums?
