As I mentioned in my previous post, Newton Running was kind enough to invite me out to Boulder, Colorado to serve on a panel tasked with discussing the “Elements of a Sustainable Runner.” In addition to myself, panelists included Danny Abshire of Newton Running, Blaise Dubois of The Running Clinic, ironman world champion and ultrarunner Heather Fuhr, Dr. Ivo Waerlop from Summit Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, and 1972 Olympic marathon gold medalist Frank Shorter. The panel was moderated by Dr. Mark Cucuzzella. Our discussion touched on a variety of topics, but the general theme was how runners can minimize their chances of getting injured. Much of the discussion focused on smart approaches to training, but topics such as form and footwear were covered as well.
