Jennifer: I’m a runner and I’ve done a couple half marathons and probably run at least 5 days a week. As I age, I keep hearing that running is actually not that good for you. How can that be?

Megan: Running is a great form of cardiovascular activity, but people are telling you this or you are hearing this because of the impact it has on the rest of your body. Many runners actually have muscle imbalances and overuse injuries. Splints and stress fractures are common as well as knee related injuries. It all comes down to your form, frequency, and surface you are doing this on. The repetitive pounding when the foot strikes the ground, particularly if form is incorrect and muscles are mis-aligned, can lead to injuries. Strength training is always advised as well because resistance training can help prevent some of these injuries and help make bones stronger too.
