Ever since I watched Eric's videos on running form, I've wanted to get a look at my own.  But I've also been embarrassed to ask anyone to take video/pictures of me running. I know that's silly but I've rarely enjoyed getting my photo taken. That's beside the point. I was finishing my long run yesterday; feeling pretty good. I realized I was running by a building that sat lower than the sidewalk I was on. I was able to see my reflection clearly in the windows and I expected to see poor form. I've worked really hard in the last few months on my form- I was really bad about getting tired at the end of a long run and getting slumpy and shuffle-y. But yesterday's reflection showed me some dang good form. It was just the boost I needed to get the rest of the way home. (Secretly, I wished I could've watched myself for longer!) So that settles it. I'm going to ask someone (probably hubby) to take a few videos of me so I can tweak my form even more. Maybe if I get REALLY brave, I'll post them!
