Realizing the shoes are the problem

IMG_7107

I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails from readers who have found my blog by searching for different running injuries. Those emails prompted me to dig through the search terms to see how people were finding my blog.  I think the number of people finding me by searching for jogging stroller recommendations was equal to the [...]

Runner’s Knee Follow Up

Before I even got back into running, my knee had been feeling kind of achy.  Sure, the added weight during my pregnancy didn’t help, but it was still hurting in the 6 weeks following giving birth where I had less extra weight on my body and was still not running.  It was hurting in the [...]

Test run postponed
