Great article!! I'm just starting out and very guilty of the shallow breathing and always looking down. I have a hard time with looking up. Too much track work, I guess. I'm going to go down the list one at a time and work on each area. Thanks for the great article!

i only wish i could run , i used to when i was younger ,, now that i am alone , the kids are gone, no man,, i cant do alot of things i used to do or want to do. i can walk a bit of distance, i wrecked my achillies tendon in my right foot, 10 yrs ago, and it didnt heal properly. Any suggestions? i also have arthritis in my low back, along with slight scoliosis. i can walk , but have to sit every so often.

I read alot of running magazines, but I will tell you, I learned more this article then you could ever imagine and I have been running for decades. Awesome awesome article. Thank you!
I have gotten those "side stitches" while running and didn't know why. I will have to practice the belly breathing! Thanks for all the great info. I will print this and keep it for reference because it is a lot of great stuff to know.
I really appreciated reading this article. I have always felt as though I had trouble running, for several reasons. But, it's also always been something I hoped to be good at. I'm going to try using these techniques, which you explained very well. Thanks!

I always wondered why it was so much easier for some people to run "naturally" than it was for me. Your article was well-written and easy to understand. Thank you !
