    Dear Meghan,

    I’m writing to you in hope that you can help me or point me in the right direction. I started running three years ago. Prior to that, I never ran except when gym class dictated track work in middle school. That was over 20 years ago. Flash forward to now – within the first 18 months of running, I ran my first three races: Broad Street, the Philly Rock and Roll Half and the Philadelphia Marathon. I ran injured at the Marathon and couldn’t of completed it without the physical therapy I was receiving to manage the pain. Since then, I haven’t been able to run consistently due to the IT band/bursitis issues that plague my training. As soon as I start logging 25-30+ miles a week, it becomes debilitating. No one could tell me why until recently. I have scoliosis (surprise) and the doctor feels the discrepency in hip alignment causes the IT band issues and bursitis of the hip. He recommends that I change my running gait. I have no idea how to do that. And that is why I am reaching out to you. I do hope you can help.

    kind regards,
    Tammy
