Hi Emily, your article is just what I needed to read. After many years of running without doing anywhere near enough stretching along the way, I'm so inflexible (in body not in mind). I tried yoga but despair at my need to bend my knees a lot for the fold- and that's just for starters. You've encouraged me to positively lower my expectations and hopefully improve my flexibility as a result. Thank you.
