Running Between The Lines

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

The Heartbreakers are the official team sponsored by HHRC, and the Young Guns are the all-new elite development division of the team. With a squad full of talented and motivated runners of all levels, the Heartbreakers are looking to make a statement on both the regional and national levels. 




Shin Tekk is an exercise tool that allows athletes to train against or rehabilitate sports-related lower leg injuries such as shin splits and ankle sprains. It improves biomechanical balance by utilizing the physical therapy technique of resisted dorsiflexsion exercises to strengthen the muscles and ligaments of the shin area and ankle. As a steeplechaser - especially one that has already sustained a serious ankle injury and is therefore more susceptible to sustaining another - having strong lower legs and ankles that I feel confident about landing on is absolutely paramount to my success. Incorporating the Shin Tekk into my strength training routine allows me to be proactive and to protect myself from the dangers of a water pit, uneven footing on a cross country course, or the hard-surface grind that comes with city running.
