Kelly, thanks for the reminder. You are correct, posture is a major factor when running or walking. Shoulders should be down and relaxed, no playing turtle. Back should be straight and one should not lean forward any more than 5 degrees, and that's mainly for going uphill. Doing core strengthening exercises will help us keep strong and relaxed.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.
