For the last 3.5 years, I have run injury-free….for the most part.  Sure, I have had aches and pains and soreness and there have even been times when I limped and hobbled and walking hurt for a day or two, BUT I *think* I have figured out what it takes to keep *me* running relatively … [Read more…]
