When something hurts, are you guilty of spending HOURS on the internet searching for a solution? Most runners are guilty of this, and we aim to be the place to go, so you can give your body what it needs; sleep and recovery.

Some people have heard on the grapevine that if left untreated, your runner's knee can leave you susceptible to arthritis, but is it true? Or another game where the truth is far from the gossip? We looked into it, so you do not have to!

Tag your friends who have suffered with Runner's Knee. They will be glad you did.
Runner's knee is painful and frustrating, but could you also be doing long term damage and risking arthritis by running on it? We look at the research, and show you how to keep your knees healthy.

We can train the physical, but you will never get to where you want to go without the mental being in the right place. These 9 tips will help you overcome those struggles we all go through during a race, so you can cross that finish line knowing you gave it all you had!

The mental aspect of racing is almost more important than the physical training you have done to get there. These 9 tips are great for switching your perspective when those negative thoughts emerge.

Summer is upon us for most of the US, and there are many things we forget about while running, which can cause frustration and disappointment. We show you how to prepare better, so you can actually enjoy the summer.....rather than pining for winter....and we all know what we did all winter :)

My best tip is not much of a tip - a no-brainer really: Stay hydrated! That comes from personal mistakes experience. :) Due to schedule my weekday runs are usually around noon or early afternoon so staying hydrated and making water stops when possible is the main thing I keep in mind.

We already know many of you are racing Bank of America Chicago Marathon​ , and we know you are excited about it. If you are not racing it this year, you hope to in the future. That is why we brought on Race Director, Carey Pinkowski to talk about the race (and the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K​).

Carey is a great guy, and this is a fun glimpse into the mind behind one of the best marathons in the world!

Tag a friend who is racing the Chicago Marathon (or looks forward to racing in the future).
This interesting interview with Chicago Marathon race director, Carey Pinkowski is great for runners who are running or ever plan to run the Chicago Marathon. Carey gives his insights into the history, course, & why it is the best marathon in the world.

One of the topics that we are asked about the most is about stress fractures, and how to help them heal faster. As much as we would love to work miracles to heal bones, we can't, but we can give you this guide with new findings about how to help you return as fast as possible, and we also look into bone stimulators, do they really work?

How did you get over the frustration of returning to running after a stress fracture? What do you wish someone would have told you?
We research bone stimulators to see if they speed recovery of stress fractures, and provide a program proven to help you return to running quickly & safely.
