Jaggers, Cedric.jpg_.jpgWhat is the thing we find in every car and never read until we have a flat tire? The owner’s manual of course. Please no e-mails from those few of you who do actually read the manual from cover to cover, we would all probably be better off if we followed your example. Does the same hold true for runners? Wouldn’t we be better off if we thought of our body as something we owned that we need to take good care of?

I’m holding the manual out of my car in my hand and the table of contents has some really interesting chapters. So let’s use the title of the chapter and change the word ‘driving’ to ‘running.’

By Teri Saylor

Teri Saylor photo.jpgSo a few years ago on a frigid Saturday morning in the middle of winter, I came up with a brilliant idea for keeping warm during a 10-mile group run.

I would wear tights – the pantyhose kind – under a pair of thick track pants.

This arrangement would be just the ticket for staying toasty, I reasoned.

The tights were nice and snug, and the pants easily fit over them.
I felt great. For about five miles.

Eventually the running group split up, and I found myself running alongside a nice Asian fellow whose English language skills were shaky at best. Midway through the run, I felt an ominous creeping sensation deep within my layers of clothing.
