Happy feet

running, shoes
So, tonight I went up to the UCSF RunSafe clinic for a running evaluation. This involved a strength and flexibility assessment by a physical therapist, an evaluation of my feet and shoes by a podiatrist, a chat with a nutritionist, and an analysis of video of my running gait while running on a treadmill.

I'll probably do a longer post once they've sent me the full report on their analysis. I was, however, absurdly pleased to be informed by a podiatrist that I have perfect feet for running. Because, really, I've never had a perfect anything for anything, athletics-wise.

Also, my gluteus maximus is apparently "legit".

Thank heavens. I have no idea where one would go to adjust the licensing on one's gluteus maximus to legitimate it.

Apparently, you'd have no idea how many distance runners are operating unlicensed butts.

I'm not completely in the clear here - my gluteus *medius* needs considerable work. But my maximus is up to code.

Good news indeed! Does the clinic cost anything? I'd love to do this.

I paid $200, although their website is now quoting the price of an assessment at $400. So either I got a deal (I think they do run periodic "specials"), or they've jacked up the price since I registered in August. (I developed trochanteric bursitis a week before my originally scheduled appointment, and ended up having to postpone it for quite a while.)
