Where: Riverview Room

Has your training been plagued by pesky injuries that won't go away? Trying to prevent aches and pains so you can do the activities you love for longer distances? Join Kimber Thorton for this interactive discussion about the biomechanics of the way we walk and run to learn more about the optimal way to move in your sport. Following an overview of the anatomy and function of our muscles and joints in the lower body, this seminar will make you aware of common factors that can lead to injuries and troublesome training. This seminar will get to the bottom of many overuse injuries, including patellofemoral pain, IT band irritation, "shin splints", and plantar fasciitis; you will walk away with simple, effective exercises that you can incorporate into your workout to treat and prevent overuse conditions whether running is your primary sport or a supplement to your other training. Walkers and runners of all levels are welcome.
