THE SADDEST THING for a runner to hear is a health practitioner saying, "You have an injury. You have to stop running."

Although running is a non-aggressive sport, it has a surprisingly high rate of injury, as high as 79%. And the risk is most serious for newcomers, people who have recently discovered running and are excited about the benefits.
The fact is, if you are a runner,
the way things are today, you will probably be injured. This book can change that.

Dr. Steve Smith is a chiropractor with
33 years of experience focusing on runners. A lifetime runner and the co-founder of the Pasadena Pacers,
he offers common-sense advice as well as easy-to-do stretches and exercises that will prepare your body to run better, stronger and with less chance of injury.

From decades treating every common runner's injury hundreds of times, and most of the exotic ones several times as well, I've learned a few simple ways of approaching running that can keep the injuries away and minimize them when they do occur. In these pages you will find the best information I've been able to bring together in one place that will help you run healthy, strong and injury-free.

I encourage you to take action on the simple strategies for running healthy you will find here. Enjoy our sport, stay on the team, and I will see you out on the road.
