Us runners, we talk a big game.
"I ran an easy 10miler this morning.. I feel so alive now!"
"Yea, I have my fall marathon coming up in a few weeks. I'm feeling a BQ with this one."
"Hey! I just set a new 5k PR!"
These snippets of our running-lives are amazing; they should be celebrated and shouted from the rooftops!

That's where understanding of the 4 supporting pillars of running comes in. We NEED to know how Mobility, Strength, Speed, and Movement play an integral role in our running routine. And, how they rely on and work with each other. Together, they are the cornerstones of injury prevention!
