Keep on running

As, It would seem, just about everyone expected; following his decision to retire after failing to complete the New York marathon on 8th November. Haile Gebrselassie has decided to change his mind and keep on running.
A decision I think most people will agree can only be good for athletics.
I wonder - will he again race the Great North Run next year? (see post for 10th November).
My day job, today brought me into contact with a company called Kinesio UK. A company who specialises in elastic therapeutic taping. "It involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction." This allows the muscles to be supported while at the same time allowing a full range of movement.
Has anyone used Kinesio tape? What are your thoughts?

Yes, there are many products similar on the market. Kinesio UK used to have the best product as the company that made the product, Nitto Denko, makes the highest quality kinesiology tape. Now SpiderTech Inc has the licensing right to Nitto. It stays on the longest as well as provides the greatest amount of relief. www.spidertech.com

I have used both extensively and SpiderTech is a much higher quality product and I use it with all my athletes
