Of course, no one's form is perfect all the time. Fatigue, uneven terrain, breaking in new shoes, or even just running while distracted can cause your form to slip. For many runners, form is more challenging because of physical conditions that make it difficult to achieve a perfect alignment from the spine to the hips, knees, ankles, to the bottoms of the feet. Conditions that make perfect form impossible will make a runner more susceptible to running injuries like sprains and runner's knee.
