Running Form on Real Runners

If you got a chance to watch the US Olympic Marathon trials this past Saturday you go a chance to see some phenomenal runners and their beautiful running form. One runner of note I'd like to point out. Not because of her stunning beauty but because of her running form. I've quoted my friend Greg McMillan often in this blog. He talks about running tall rather than worry about foot placement. There is no better example then Kara. She is one tall (as in she runs ver tall) powerful runner. But if you notice in this picture and in any video of her running she lands on her heels. That for sure has got to be sending shock waves through her body making her one slow poke runner. Not! 3rd place and a stamped ticket to London proves otherwise. 

It's a good life....
