Running Injury Prevention for the New Year

What are your New Year resolutions? What are your New Year goals? Perhaps you
want to complete your first marathon? Or run an Ultra? Or set a new 5k PR? Complete a trialthlon? Or hike the many fantastic trails that Bozeman has to offer? What
ever your goal may be, staying injury free will assist you in your pursuit.
With the growing evidence that many running injuries result from hip and buttock
weakness, maybe we should all begin our quest to attain our 2018 goals with
firming our booty. David McHenry is a physical therapist with the Oregon Project
who has been charged with keeping their athletes and Olympians (Galen Rupp, Mo
Farah, etc) healthy and strong throughout their training schedules. I invite you to
view the Oregon Project Stability Routine. (see link below)
