One thing all runners dread is that feeling that something hurts – and not a “good hurt” either! If you’re in tune with your body, you know when something hurts the “wrong way.” You also have to be careful of external factors, like running in traffic, or other ways you can get injured. Our next guest on Running Around Charlotte is a pro at preventing the injuries – Kelly Moriarty is a Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator for Novant Health.
Kelly works with a broad range of people, trying to prevent injury from multiple types of trauma – including child abuse, dating violence, and guns. But she also helps runners avoid injury too, and that’s why she’s here with us today… so you DON’T end up being a patient if you can avoid it.
