Small Changes that will Make You a Better Runner

James Gucciardi, D.C.

So you’ve been running awhile and hopefully you’ve been consistently making progress.  If you’re savvy, you’ve realized how using strength training not only improves your times, but hopefully has made you more resistant to injury too. But there is one area for improvement that rarely gets any love even though it can make a huge impact on the quality of your life.  What is it?

Learn to move efficiently and then make it a daily practice.  While this will certainly help your running, the truth is moving more efficiently will also reduce your potential for injury and simply make you feel better in your own skin with everything you do.  This article is not about the best running style.  There really is no such thing.  “But wait…I thought you’re supposed to land on your mid-foot. No, heel strike!  Mid-foot!  Heel strike!”  Less Filling; Tastes Great!  You get the idea.  Although there is no best running style, elite runners all have one thing in common…they are efficient.  Amateur runners who are often injured also have one thing in common…they’re not.

Hot or cold, rain or shine, no matter how many times we do them, it just doesn’t seem to get easier. Continue Reading →

What Was I Thinking- by Rich Sallustro

What Was I Thinking Tuesday?!
Interestingly enough, the topic of today’s agenda is the very experience that has brought me here today. This post is rated PG-13.
It was July 2013, again only several months after I had really started to take this running stuff seriously. In my mind I was a superstar….did well in my first 5K in Blue Point, signed up for the LI Airport Run for Vets a month later and shave an additional 30 sec off my 5K…I was a fine tuned running machine and it only took me 5 months! (insert sarcasm here). I could do this silly hill course in my sleep….bring it on! Clearly, I was delusional. Continue Reading →

January Warrior of the Month- Juan Oliveras

Not expecting too many warriors to have met the minimum mileage for January with the weather being such a horror I was surprised that we had 10 meet the threshold.
The winner of the January Warrior of the Month with an amazing total of 100.3 miles was also our first repeat winner of the award. Congratulations to Juan Oliveras! Don’t know how you managed it but you blew away the field.
