That is awesome that you are able to run with scoliosis. That is not a fun thing to have. I am feeling your pain...apparently, my right hip is higher than my left...I have a mild "c" curve in my spine(no one has called it scoliosis). I find that my left IT Band stays tight from trying to make the compensation... I have to make sure that keep stretching everything out or my left knee will ache, especially at night. When I was pregnant with my son (5 yrs ago) I wasn't able to stretch and with all of the hormonal relaxation going on, my left kneecap actually came off of my knee. Now, that was a joy to rehab.
I started having the IT Band problem about 15 (yikes..I'm getting some age on me, too) years ago. But, I keep on...it's the one of the places that I am able to zone out and blank my mind..and just run. I know that you'll get to your goal.... you can do it. Next year I want to do the Cooper River Bridge Run...it's in Charleston SC.... and it's a run with a big party wrapped around it!!
Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!
as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
