Running Biomechanics Clinic

Last night we had a clinic on Running Biomechanics at the Running Injury Clinic.  Karen Kendall gave a great presentation on how to make sure our bodies are balanced in a number of areas so we can run injury free.   I got so much out of this presentation and I think I might now be equipped to make adjustments to my running form so I won't be plagued by some of the knee complaints I have been having.

I also won the draw for the Team in Training fuel belt that was up for grabs!  So excited because I really wanted this one :)  

And in sad news - we got official word yesterday morning that our big black dog, Abner, has cancer.   He's only 5 and a half years old so this was a bit of a blow to our family.   He is now on prednisone for a year to try to prevent regrowth of the giant tumour that was removed and the vet is very hopeful that he will respond well.  In the meantime, I am on the hunt for a canine cancer ribbon to wear on race day to count him among my honourees.
