    Inspirational plus a good for you!

    Although running has been a passion of mine for over a decade the idea of a marathon was, well, past tiring. A 100-mile run, yet another good for you!

    Any tips for clumsy legs on down hills, aside from slowing down of course. I’d love to build better coordination, any thoughts on that? My core strength is very strong and I use it to help with coordination, but my coordination could still use some improvement.

    I also have a right leg, which doesn’t like to cooperate with me. I use an athletic brace to help with that. But this isn’t enough either.

    I weight train. I try to identify and target the leg muscles that could potentially further alleviate this problem, but again not completely resolved.

    I’d appreciate any of your thoughts.
