Hey everyone, my name is Liam and I am a high school runner. I participated in track and field for three years and absolutely love the sport. Right now, I am training for the marathon.
I had two injuries in the course of my running career: Shin splints and IT Band syndrome. The shin splint resulted from inconsistent training, and the ITBS was from a mechanical flaw. What really inspired me to make this site was my experience with the ITBS.
When I first started researching for ITBS, Google gave me the conventional injury treating method. On paper, this sounded great, it has everything I need. However, it was not until lots of trial and error that I found out that none of these tips are going to help if I do not fix my form. My knee was collapsing in with each stride, and no amount of “RICE” is going to fix that. I spent a lot of time doing research, and I wished that someone could just tell me what is wrong. This is exactly why I made this site. I believe that every injury is a lesson learned, and this lesson should also be shared with other runners.
