Cindy Kuzma is a runner and a writer.  In the March 2016 edition of Runner's World she has two articles, including the "Injury-Prediction Calculator" article.  It's an interesting article.  Cindy and I discuss not only that article, but an article she did for the March 2015 RW edition on the importance of the hip in running injuries.  Finally, I'm lucky to have the chance to coach Cindy online.  She takes her running seriously and in this interview you'll hear about all of the time she spent in the gym going from injury this fall to running at well in February.
