I was reading Runblogger this morning and came across these videos. Ever since my achilles problem after the Asheville Half Marathon in September, I’ve been reading a lot about injury prevention and recovery, and so I found this to be really interesting.

I wonder sometimes what kind of runner I would be had I started running instead of playing soccer. I always liked playing soccer, but I never enjoyed it as much as I enjoy running. I’ve been reading as much as possible about running since I started regularly running, and I really want to become a better runner. Learning as much as possible is a big part of it, as is actually going out and actually putting one foot in front of the other.

Anyhow, it looks likeĀ  I am going to run the Elf Trot 5k in Kennesaw, Ga this weekend. I’ll be running as a costumed character to promote a 10k that my company is putting on in February.
