At least they admit that they are over-analyzing it:

Running the curve of a race does not need to be as complex as many coaches make it out to be.

Who knew running was so simple.. or so complicated?
I will be the first to confess I can't spot the difference in running styles..or figure out how "squatting" is going to increase stride length.. :?

Since the three topics these authors have given us so far are:

Shoulder Rotation and Stride Length
Why Should I Drag My Toe?

Next it will be running with your eyes closed, followed by running with your arms straight down your sides like that Chinese gal. Or how about how Gin is the perfect drink while running. The possibilities are endless.

You should never drink gin WHILE running because you might spill it and waste good gin.
