Have you ever watched a race broadcast on television and marveled at the effortless grace of a professional runner striding out sub-five-minute miles, as if they were out for an easy jog in the park? Contrast this to the general masses seen pounding out miles struggling to stay in shape.

We are all born with a certain running style and degree of efficiency. However, proper run mechanics or form can be developed and improved upon.
