Stretching Tips and Websites.

I just started running. Can anyone give me some tips on propper stretching before and after my runs? Does anyone know of any good websites on this subject?

    Stretching Tips and Websites.

    I found this article in Runner's World Magazine.  I really like their website too.  There is a lot of information on it.

    I also recommend foam rolling after any intense workouts, running, or strength training.  it helps breakdown the lactic acid build up, and really makes a diffence in next day soreness level.  Hope that helps
