Stretching is critical to remaining healthy and running better. Understanding proper techniques and using effective tools that will provide the best results are critical to long term success. Different people will tell you different things. Not all are correct and may create more problems than solutions. Therefore, knowing the source of your information is vital.
TAUR has partnered with Medi-Dyne for more than a year now and we value the products and services they provide. They recently developed and released this great video of a fun and effective stretching tool, the ProStretch. Take a look and see how proper stretching can improve your health and running.

Pistol Pete Stoughton is an expatriate of Jersey. Never venturing far from the confines of the sidewalk, Pete slowly learned the joys of the trails in his post graduate years. Prior to an ACL surgery last year, Pete completed numerous ultra distances including a finish and preceding DNF at the Wasatch100. Some of Pete's greatest running accomplishments include a 5 minute mile at age 35 and PRs prior to his ACL surgery, and running with Dean Karnazas and the current record holder of the Fight for Air Climb (18,800' in 6 hours). Through these experiences, Pete has had the opportunity to work closely on product development and testing of companies such as Brooks, Patagonia, Merrell, Goretex and Hoka.
More importantly, Pete is a proud father of two beautiful children and happily married to an amazingly patient wife. In his spare time he is a teacher in Park City, UT and coaches the Park City High School Mtn Bike Team.
