Last week’s discussion about stretching for runners produced some useful insights into whether, when, how, and how much to stretch. Plus a few of runners are still skeptical about the results of stretching. Ahhh, it' s true how much runners demand evidence!
This week’s winner is Kavitha. For leaving her comments, Kavitha wins a stretching instructional book and DVD by Brian Dorfman. Thank you to everyone for leaving you ideas and experiences. With running topics, it' s seldom about being right or certain; it' s more about good running conversation and considering the views of other runners.
