Graduate student gives advice in Runner's World
Laura Polikowky, M.A. student in Kinesiology and advised by Prof. Beth Lewis, was quoted in the November issue of Runner's World. Ms. Polikowsky, who also is a running coach, was the consulted expert in the Challenge Q&A section of the magazine on whether pushing a stroller while running counts for extra miles. Ms. Polikowsky responded that while you don't earn extra miles, there are other benefits of pushing a stroller, such as burning more calories. "The effort of pushing a stroller can also strengthen your deltoids, pectorals, and biceps," she added.
