Don't worry I'm not training for a marathon or anything. But I was curious about the proper form and really how those crazies at the gym could run for miles.
And then the article I was reading spoke to me. It was like it knew I, Ashley Jones, was reading it. For it provided me with this analogy:
Keep your hands in an unclenched fist, with your fingers lightly touching your palms. Imagine yourself trying to carry a potato chip in each hand without crushing it.
I know that hand position very well as I have frequently carried a bag of chips or 2...or 9..whatever that's not important. What is important is that I finally understand the way you're supposed to look when you run--graceful and triple f if you will. Not like how I run--like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
That's all for now.
