Ask Joe Uhan

Stay the CourseWell, we’ve been at this for going on three years. The pages of “Stay the Course” have been littered with everything from shin strain to psychology, from injuries and insults to hydration and salts. My hope is you’ve had a fraction of as much enjoyment reading–or at least skimming–these pages as they’ve been for yours truly to pen.

It’s time to turn it to to readers of iRunFar. What questions do you have for me? Injury woes? Questions about nutrition? Trail running X’s and O’s? Stride mechanics? Who’s doing all the exercise photography?

Call for Comments (from Meghan)

Here’s how this works. Email Joe with your questions at [email protected] by next Monday, December 1, at 11:59 p.m. From the questions Joe receives, he will answer some of them in his December “Stay the Course” column. Okay, let’s do this; email Joe and ask away!

    What's the latest, greatest on hip labral tear non-surgical rehab, recovery, return to trail ultras. I know two in that boat right now (not me) who are strong in their age group in their local area and facing this. Obviously they need to be seen by an experienced PT who specializes… Any new specifics?
