|How to Improve Your Running Form: The 5 Biggest Mistakes Beginning Marathoners Make|
Try our interactive lessons at http://www.curious.com/thebalancedrunner.
Hi everyone! We're Jae Gruenke and Julia Pak from The Balanced Runner, and we specialize in helping
runners improve their form and performance using the Feldenkrais Method. In today's video we're
going to explore what it might be about your running form that's causing aches and pains and making
it so tough to finish long runs. We'll give you the running form guidance we give our clients when they
come to us for help with their marathon training.
Every year in August so many people training for their first marathon come to us because they've
developed pain and the early signs of injury as their mileage increases beyond what they're used to. If
you're watching this, we bet you can relate. You're following the advice on running form you've read
in books or magazines, or heard from your friend or maybe even a coach, and it doesn't help much if at
all. There are a lot of possible reasons for this, but very often the cause is a few common running form
mistakes. And they are:
1. Running upright -- there's a difference between slouching and leaning. We're not saying you
should slouch, but when you run you have to lean forward, the amount you lean depends on
2. Overstriding -- landing with your foot in front of your hip joint rather than underneath.
Changing your footstrike is a complicated issue -- both what part of your foot you land on and
where your foot is relative to your hip joint -- because your feet land where they have to in
order to keep you from falling over. So to change your footstrike you have to change what you
do with your torso, arms, and head, and it's a change you should never try to force. We'll talk
about how to do it more in a future video.
3. Heelstriking -- landing on your heels and rolling through to the balls of your toes. Make sure
you're not trying to land on your heels -- ideally your landing should be on the middle of
your foot or near the ball of your foot -- but also don't force yourself not to if it's what comes
4. Pulling your shoulders back and swinging your arms front-to-back. Running depends on a
counter-rotation of the upper and lower body which generates power for running and reduces
bouncing and impact. This counter-rotation makes your arms swing on a diagonal pathway,
not front-to-back. This counter-rotation also means that one shoulder goes forward as the
other goes back, so if you pull both shoulders back you'll reduce this important rotation and
significantly increase your impact.
5. Tightening your core. The other half of this counter-rotation is movement of the pelvis, and if
you grip your abs in a corset-like action you will restrict the movement and, again, significantly
increase your impact and over-stress your legs. This is a classic cause of IT band problems, knee
pain, and plantar fasciitis.
So that's a brief explanation of each of these. Learning to run correctly is a process that can take awhile,
but hopefully just knowing these key elements will help you begin to feel better. And most important of
all, never run through pain! If your running hurts, start looking at how to change your form. Thanks for
watching and be sure to subscribe for more running form tips!

|New York City Marathon Inspiration Video|
|The most inspiring video you will ever watch!|
*This is a repost of a video that a friend of mine made. He posted it to a car website to inspire the members there. I wanted others to see the video so that they too could be inspired. For all those wondering, Julia is still alive and Roger continues to run for her sake. So this isnt a video about sadness, it one of the human spirit and what it can accomplish.*
In 2008, Roger set out on a quest to lose weight, get healthy and eventually run in the Boston Marathon. But not just for himself, for his niece who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. His goal was to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis, along with raising money for research into the treatment and cure of this heartbreaking disease. This video highlights his incredible journey at age 47, from obesity to accomplished marathon runner.
Roger is a humble man, and continues to run marathons to this day to raise money for CF research. He works tirelessly to spread the message that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to do.
On November 6, 2011 Roger ran the New York City Marathon. It was his 12th marathon in the 2.5 years since he ran the 2009 Boston Marathon.
If you would like to read more or donate to the CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation), you can browse to www.rfme.org and read more about both Roger and CF.
As a personal note, I watch this video constantly when I need some positive motivation. It is my desire and his that this video reaches as many people as possible. For those that need the help, and ultimately, those who can donate. We can find a cure for CF. This is a dreamed shared by everyone. Please pass this video along. Every penny I get from the viewing of this video, will be donated to the CFF.

|INSPIRATIONAL - HOW GREAT I AM|
|One of the most courageous things you will ever see on a running track ! In my opinion|
This video seems to be getting a lot of stick because I have chosen to use the word courageous, which in my opinion this is. Having been a pretty good track athlete myself and having served in the British Army on many active tours of duty and having donated a kidney to my younger brother, I think I have a pretty good Idea what courage is. Why do people get so offended and abusive over the use of the word courage? courage has many different meanings and even more applications. You do not have to be in life or death situation to display courage. I have never seen a race at this level where a runner has comeback to win after being overtaken in the home straight, it is almost impossible to do, your body and brain are screaming at you to give it up, you've done your best, your not fit enough, but this where the courage comes in, courage overules your brain, courage ignores the pain, courage finds more when there's no more to give! So in my opinion this is the most amazing display of courage on a TRACK!! i have ever seen, fortunately as you can see from the likes and dislikes that most people agree. To come on here and rant, rave, and swear at me over such an innocent video just makes those people look like the fools that they are !! Steve Jones is a British running legend and this is why !!!!
