  1. What a great list! A few of these are new to me. Being an injured runner stinks and I can’t wait to be competitive again. My other favorites to add would be @runtheedge guys, they are fun, experienced and motivating.- They have an awesome!/search/users/runtheedge book out as well.

    And @karagoucher, who I’m a huge fan of too :)
