    'In the Spotlight' with Beth Ann Miazga

    In this edition of 'In the Spotlight,' let's talk with Beth Ann "Shake & Bake" Miazga. I've had the pleasure of working with Beth Ann since October 2020 when she first enrolled in the 6-week RunStrong Challenge. Since then, we continue to turn the dials so she can build strength and resilience for the challenging demands of trail running. Running trails is no easy feat.

To her credit, Beth Ann manages it well and remains focused on the long-term goal of mitigating injury and building sustainable running. ....
