    AMR Trains #34: Knee Pain and Running

    In this episode of AMR Trains Body Series, Dimity talks to Dr. Rozalyn Moore, owner of Rekinetic Physical Therapy and Wellness, about keeping your knees healthy and pain free through your miles.

    —Why she's not a fan of knee braces or too much cushioning in running shoes.

DJ do do DJ ,

Don’t change!

This is such a great podcast! Love all of the real life topics they cover. It seems like most other running podcasts just have a continuous string of elite athletes on their show. Which can be great on occasion but just not very relatable to most of us. I love hearing about how everyday moms incorporate running into their lives and the tips/great advice they give-so inspiring!!

Love love love (but...)

Can you please tone it down with the Dipsy ads? I’m not a prude (but I am a New Englander), yet my reach for the fast forward button has not been fast enough when my littles have been in the room. Not sure why “sexy time” needs to be part of a running pod. (But, hey— still 5 stars because I love you guys)
