Stretching and injury prevention: an obscure relationship. - PubMed - NCBI
Sports involving bouncing and jumping activities with a high intensity of stretch-shortening cycles (SSCs) [e.g. soccer and football] require a muscle-tendon unit that is compliant enough to store and release the high amount of elastic energy that benefits performance in such sports. If the participants of these sports have an insufficient compliant muscle-tendon unit, the demands in energy absorption and release may rapidly exceed the capacity of the muscle-tendon unit. This may lead to an increased risk for injury of this structure. Consequently, the rationale for injury prevention in these sports is to increase the compliance of the muscle-tendon unit. Recent studies have shown that stretching programmes can significantly influence the viscosity of the tendon and make it significantly more compliant, and when a sport demands SSCs of high intensity, stretching may be important for injury prevention. This conjecture is in agreement with the available scientific clinical evidence from these types of sports activities. In contrast, when the type of sports activity contains low-intensity, or limited SSCs (e.g. jogging, cycling and swimming) there is no need for a very compliant muscle-tendon unit since most of its power generation is a consequence of active (contractile) muscle work that needs to be directly transferred (by the tendon) to the articular system to generate motion. Therefore, stretching (and thus making the tendon more compliant) may not be advantageous. This conjecture is supported by the literature, where strong evidence exists that stretching has no beneficial effect on injury prevention in these sports.

Jragghen comments on Share your "running hacks". I'll go first.
If you're using in-ear bud headphones, loop the cord around the back of your ears before having it go down to your mp3 player. This puts the downward pressure of the cable on the top of your ears, and the buds just dangle down from that and fit inside with no issue - they don't pop out nearly as easily.

After I run I just jump in the shower with my tech gear on (shirt and shorts) and hang them up to air dry afterwards.

NailPolishIsWet comments on Share your "running hacks". I'll go first.
Semi-novice runner here: When I feel like I'm out of breath and have to stop, I do a posture check: pull my shoulders back & look a little higher into the distance than I was before. This helps me open my chest so I can get a better lung expansion and go a few minutes longer than I thought I could.

mhvoth comments on Fogged glasses - solutions?
I haven't tried it on my glasses, but the best anti-fog remedy for my swimming goggles have been to clean them with baby shampoo. Put a drop on each lens, rub it around, rinse off. This has worked better for me than products specifically described as "anti-fog" cleaners.
