Hi, I have a 12 yr old daughter who is in her first season of cross country. She's 5'5 and about 130 pounds and has long legs. She takes very short strides when running flat ground. She told me it hurts her ankles up to her knees and the outer upper thigh when she opens up her stride. She said she can open her stride with no pain when she runs hills. She does stretches and is also lifting. Is there anything that she can do to lessen the pain or does she have to live with this? She wants to continue running
