I'm pretty sure on the other thread I agreed with you that form is huge. It made a huge difference for me by adjusting the way I ran it didn't magically make it easier or anything but the results of barely ever getting shin splints spoke volumes to me. It used to be that I just thought I was just going to get shin splints no matter how much I ran. Now I know differently.
