Steph had another cross country meet this afternoon, this one at Audubon Park. She ran the first mile too fast which made her start running out of gas near the end finishing about eight seconds slower than her best.As you can see her running form is still tops.But she needs to improve on her spitting.
Her natural running technique in the first picture does look pretty graceful, but I see she's doing the exact same thing that I did as a freshman cross country runner before my coach caught it and corrected me- running with clenched fists. On the other hand in the amusing expectoration picture her hands look nicely relaxed with thumbs on top so maybe she only clenched her fists for a brief moment and usually keeps them relaxed. Not a huge deal either way, but in my experience relaxed is generally better than tensed up.
Good catch on the clenched fists, Jason. I'll mention that to her. In my experience relaxed is the only way to go.
