On this blog we’ve written several articles on the slippery slope of running form coaching and analysis.

Stress fractures are highly common among high school runners. Like many conditions, certain risk factors emerge to help predict this entirely preventable injury. Let’s face it, if you run so far and so hard that you break your own bones you’ve probably missed a LOT of risk factors. But with college scholarships on the line, it’s not surprising that injuries will sometimes occur. Understanding risk factors can help coaches and athletes navigate that very fine line between injury and optimal performance.
