Anatomy of running

As I always say, knowledge is power! So for those of you who run and want to know a bit more about how your body propels you across the earth. Here is an article about which muscles do what. The article does its job, but the author mixes up the adductor and abductor groups as far as what they do. The adductors pull the leg inward across the midline of the body, while the abductors pull the leg away from the midline of the body. Interesting, if you're a nerd like me! ;-)
