I'm doing some writing for Competitor.com now, and I had the chance to talk to Loren Zitomersky, who is planning to run Boston backwards and break the world record for fastest marathon run backwards.
I busted out my Lumo tracker a few days ago because I feel like my running form has been all off. Ever since taking a (short) break after the BMW Dallas Half Marathon, I’ve been dealing with neck and shoulder pain after I run, which typically points to a problem with my form.
My last race was in 2015. I’ve run pretty consistently since then, but in 2015 I was dealing with what I didn’t know was a vestibular disorder. It made running hard.
I was too worried to try a race. I knew my time would be slow. I wasn’t sure if I would even be able to finish 3.1 miles with a dizzy head.
