Some of the best running advice someone ever gave me was to lean forward from your ankles when running down a hill. Let your arms go loose and just feel the hill. It works so well. I have shaved minutes of my races doing this. Instead of leaning back and putting the breaks on just own the hill. It kinda feels like your flying…

^ Yep.  Lean forward while running downhill.  It’s a little scary at first, but it’s easier on the joints.
