****   Additional information   ****

To race well you need to develop a steady state pace that will give you the finish time you want. Doing the miles alone will not get you there- developing  superior running mechanics before adding up the miles is a critical part of your success. Proper range of motion, joint stability, and a strong core that can connect the upper body to the legs are fundamental to keeping your form together throughout the race. The reason for “hitting the wall” at the later part of the race is not solely a result of lack of proper nutrition. In many cases it is the increased reliance on your muscles due to poor running mechanics. Understanding the key factor of range of motion and joint stability in addition to intensive drill work will give you the edge you need to achieve your goal.
