Attending a Running Injury Conference in Sheperdstown, WV

Posted on January 25 2011

re-evolution_of_running_text_e103Why runners get hurt is a question that occupies my mind almost constantly. It’s amazing that so simple an activity can cause so many problems for so many people – for example, the scientific literature reports injury rates ranging from about 20-75% of runners in studies that have been conducted to date. In my quest to better educate myself on the topic of running injury, I decided to accept my friend Dr. Mark Cucuzzella’s offer to head down to Sheperdstown, West Virginia this weekend to attend a 3 day conference/course on prevention and treatment strategies for running injuries. Put on by the, the course should be a great learning experience for me, and my intention is to blog about the experience while there and/or after returning home. Stay tuned!

As part of the weekend event, Mark also invited me to participate in a public forum called The Re-Evolution of Running: Discover Pain Free Movement for Life. This event will be held at the Bavarian Inn in Sheperdstown, WV on Friday, January 28th from 7:00-9:00 PM.

Guest panelists include leading clinicians, researchers, teachers, writers, athletes, and footwear experts from around the globe (note, though I appreciate Mark’s sentiment below, I suspect that this little blog is not the world’s most widely read site on running innovation Smile):
