I missed fall racing because of a "runner's knee" problem and now seeing a physical therapist to correct. I truly want to run this winter for spring racing. Can anyone recommend who or what else I can do to relieve weakness and patella pain?? X-rays are clear, must be some soft tissue under the knee cap. Thoughts??? Anyone had this problem? I am open to anything.

Foam rolling on IT band, quad & calf, patella tendon support strap...ask your PT if there is weakness in your quad muscle as that might be a source as well. Also, you may want to consider putting Superfeet (an over the counter insole) in your shoes to give support to your feet as that can be the source of knee pain sometimes. Hope this helps!

Thanks; all of this helps. I'll discuss with my PT; I definitely have a weakness in the quad. Sounds like I am heading in the right direction, but hoping for some magic relief so I can train; I miss running!

Hey Bob. Recently had similar problem. Did your discomfort coincide with an effort to improve speed?

I have decided to start a drive to collect unwanted, but never worn or gently used, race t-shirts for donation to Goodwill. Please take a look in your closets and drawers and see if you'd like to help the cause. I'll try to organize a drop point to correspond with one of the upcoming races, perhaps Seaside Shuffle or the Craig Race.

I have a tub of Race for the Cure shirts that I no longer care to do anything with. 126 races in 10 years and still no cure. Can't even begin to say how many I have donated to Goodwill, as my kids often accompanied me.

Christmas party is December 6 :) Mark your calendars Roadrunners. I will have registration open next week; you may pay online, mail in check or give to a board member at a run. (I'll provide more details soon!) Remember, that you will need to purchase a ticket and we actually will have 100 person limit so be sure to purchase as much in advance as possible. Still taking volunteers for set up and break down. Feel free to message me with specific questions :)

Hi Battleship Half TrySports Water Stop Volunteers! You can meet me and Brenda Estlack at TS at 7:00 a.m. to load up supplies or you can meet us at 8:00 a.m. at the 10-mile marker. Our water stop is located right by the spillway at Greenfield Lake on 3rd Street. We'll have a TrySports tent set up, so you can't miss us. Please bundle up, because it's supposed to be a cold morning. Thank you for all of your help and feel free to contact me with any questions!! francesatkins@trysports.com or here on FB, Gracias!

If anyone knows anyone who knows anyone who can't run battleship half and needs to get rid of their bib for a good cause (ok there's no cause, but it sounds good) hit a sister up !!!

Stephanie Carter Hey Shephanie, if you cop a bib please let us change it to your name at the expo. Otherwise you run as someone else and that can have negative impacts on the awards that can cascade through the whole awards layout. Thank you.
