Glut Amnesia

by Robert Irwin
Are you experiencing pain and discomfort and are unable to run because of pain? The problem may be something called “glute” amnesia.

These "energy leaks" effect you’re running by causing the peripheral tissues like the hamstrings or lower back muscles to overwork trying to overcome this glut inhibition .... continued

Where Thou Thy Sanity Romeo?

by Ben Heller
What if I told you that at least in upstate New York, there is a constant theme of drama in the running community?

Running: Step 8 ... What Happens When You Need "Triple A"

by Mike Naylor
When is the last time you needed Triple A? Was it in the middle of a snowstorm and your transmission was locked up? Was it heading home from SUNY Cobleskill on I-88 at 2 in the morning? Or was when you were away for work, and your wife calls and says the car stopped and fluid is running out of it? All of these incidents have happened to me and my family. It was comforting to know that all I had to do was pick up a phone and a tow truck would soon be there, to not only tow my or one of my kid’s cars, but also to provide a feeling of security and relief to be driven to safe place where a pickup could be arranged. .... continued
