Have you ever injured your knee before or had knee pain and you went to the doctor and they told you to stop running?
Did you follow their recommendation, go to PT, go see a chiropractor, and then even after you took 4 weeks or even 8 weeks off from running the pain was still there?
Have you been told that your only option at that point is a PRP injection?
Today’s interview with Kristi is going to be helpful for you if you ever struggled with knee pain before that limited you from running or getting in those lunges during your strength work or if you just feel to too slow to ever be able to run a marathon.
Listen to the Podcast Episode during your next run!
Kristi is just one of our SPARK winners from our Healthy Runner Coaching Program who has just accomplished some amazing things with her running and health. I just needed to get her on our LIVE show to share her tips with many of you who may be struggling with similar issues.
If you are a runner who is worried you may do long term damage to your knee but still want to maintain your connections and meet up with your mom groups, challenge yourself physically, and needs some guidance then this is just what you need to provide you some hope!

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!! I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive. Coach Lu would adjust the training plan to my schedule which made it easier for me to follow. Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury. Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal! I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level. Just be consistent and trust the process, you will crush your next race with this team!”
“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”
Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.
I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!
The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
