Heather Ebright is a runner, so she understands the joy of going out for a long run and pushing her body to go faster, farther and stronger. She is also a Pilates Instructor who knows that proper running form isn't enough to keep you from getting injured.
Her website, StrongRunning.com, is devoted to helping runners learn how to avoid the most common running injuries, including IT Band Syndrome, runners knee, and Shin Splints. Heather suffered many of those injuries herself in her years as a competitive and recreational runner and marathoner, but it was only after she started studying about Pilates that she realized that most running injuries can be prevented by strengthening the muscles in your core.
She found that muscle imbalances cause the majority of injuries, and can be corrected simply and effectively by doing Pilates. After proving it true for herself and runners who took her classes, she put together a complete program that is available for download to help runners everywhere.

If you're a runner, then more likely then not, you've had some sort of running injury. Runners hate their injuries, because they keep them from training, but they assume that they are a part of the sport, a sacrifice that has to be made every so often in order to keep running.
Heather Ebright is a runner who felt the same way, but after happening upon a Pilates class shortly after recovering from her first marathon, she suddenly realized that with the proper strengthening, runners could avoid injuries and run stronger and pain free.
She became a Pilates enthusiast, and then a Certified Pilates Instructor, and now she uses her expertise to help runners to strengthen their core and bring their bodies into the balance needed to avoid future injuries and run better then ever.
