So tell me, what’s wrong with you?

People who run and ride often get injured.

depositphotos_3461043-Bicycle-chainSome of those injuries turn chronic. Nagging. Difficult to cure.

And you don’t know what to do.

So tell me, what’s wrong with you?

Write in a Word document, 150 words or less, and then copy and post in the comments section below. If it won’t let you do that, send it to

This is your chance, in 150 words or so, to get it out there.

Perhaps you have a nagging biomechanical flaw that holds your training back.

Write it down and send it in.

Or, your stomach fights you whenever you attempt a fast race.

Perhaps your feet always blister, or your bike shorts rub you the wrong way.

We’re here to listen. And to respond.

Most people don’t want to listen to your problems. But we do. And perhaps we’ll be able to crowdsource a solution. Or two. And wouldn’t that be fun?

Tell us your problem(s). You can keep them confidential if you like.

But let it all out. You can’t bring them up at a cocktail party because people’s eyes glaze over and they make an excuse to get more food. But we’re ready to listen at WeRunandRide.

Tell your friends too. Let’s all play true confessions. Cause it feels good to complain.

At We Run and Ride, we’re here to listen. Get that nagging problem off your chest.

It could be mental. Physical. Medical. Quizzical.

We’ll publish your feedback, anonymously if you choose.. So share your fitness challenges and hear about the challenges faced by others. This should be fun.

It should also be cathartic. And perhaps your problems won’t seem so bad when you share them and hear about the problems faced by others who run and ride and swim.

You just might get answers to what’s wrong with you. The readers of this blog and the discussions it engenders might be the way you get past your worst problems–the tarsnakes of your training and racing– when you run and ride.

I’ll start off the series tomorrow and let you mull it over the weekend. Remember to post your problems to the comments section below or send them to

Let ‘er rip.

  1. Chris, I just finished a marathon so this is all still fresh in my mind. Quite often after 20 miles my hip joints ache. Each step feels like a hammer into the socket. Sometimes the hip and groin muscles hurt also.
    I’ve added some new stretching to my routine and it helps some, but not past mile 20. I’ve tried glucosomine and fish oil, doesn’t do a thing for me. Others swear by those pills.
    If I can resolve my hip pain I may be able to BQ someday. Any ideas?
