Running on Knowledge

As runners and athletes, health enthusiasts and foodies, we like to read. We like tips, training plans, theories and methods, first hand accounts and recipes. We consume information incessantly because we want to know all there is to know about our passion, support others and keep getting better.

Hospital for Special Surgery, on Manhattan's Upper East Side, is a world leader in orthopedic surgery. They are constantly developing revolutionary techniques to help people overcome obstacles and injuries. HSS Physicians and athletic trainers work with numerous teams including: New York Knicks, New York Mets, New York Giants, the Nets, the New York Liberty (WNBA), and the New York Red Bull (MLS). They know their stuff and they know athletes.

One of the numerous divisions at HSS is the Women's Sports Medicine Center and on the department's website is a library of health and fitness information specifically for women. The information is organized under three main topics: exercise, injury prevention and treatment, and nutrition. A lot of this is helpful for non-runners/athletes as well.

This is a great resource and I highly recommend you add it to your favorites list so you can refer to it when you have a question or concern, or just want to learn more. And because I never want to leave out the guys, check out this page that lists all the departments at HSS. I'm sure there is a lot of great info in here to keep you running too!

Do you have a go to source for information when it comes to your health?
