Elements of a Sustainable Runner: Panel Discussion on Injuries, Training, Form, and Footwear from the Newton Running Retail Summit (Audio and Video)

Pete on PanelAs 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.

    My entirely unqualified opinion: Cross train. Running is the only sport where people seem to assume that the activity itself is sufficient. No one would step on a football field without having properly conditioned their body first; and although people are a lot less likely to hit you while running, I think the same principle applies.

  2. in which part are you featured?

    Pete, seriously?  I need to write a paper this weekend, you’re killing me.  How am I supposed to get anything done when you post stuff like this :)

  4. Pete,

    Looks like a great conference.  Wish I could have attended.  Is there any chance we could get a copy of the document you prepared and was mentioned several times in the presentation?

    Thanks,
    Shelly

  5. In one of the videos it quotes a Chinese saying about not running like an elephant. Does anyone remember which clip it was so I don’t have to listen to it all again? Or what the Chinese proverb was?
