Prevent Injury & Run Your Best

One of the biggest training mistakes runners make is leaving recovery to chance. 

Running demands a lot from our bodies, if we’re not keeping up with maintenance, then it will eventually break down.

The best way to prevent injury while training for an event is with targeted mobility and strength work.

Our friends at Dynamic Runner have created easy to follow routines, 15 - 20 minutes in length, that will keep you running pain free all the way to the finish line.
