Running Tip: From Winner of 2008 Chicago Marathon

Russian veteran runner Lidiya Grigoryeva captured the women’s crown at 2008 Chicago marathon. Her performance was more remarkable because she started the race with a sore hip.

This is what she told the media “the unseasonable heat was welcome, because it slowed the pace long enough for her to warm up a sore hip.”

The lesson here is that if you feel sore in the leg, knee, ankle don’t get discouraged instead start slow and once the area warms up you will start feeling fine.
