POSE Run On Ice
Very cool video of Dr. Romanov, POSE inventor, running on hockey ice.  Look for the relatively small amount of his leg that gets in front of his center of gravity, how his foot lands under his body so as not to provide a decellerating vector, and how his primary activity is to pull his heel towards his glutes - while he falls forward off of his supporting leg.  In other words, his technique is to allow gravity to pull him forward (gravity is not optional) while he simply changes his supporting leg from one to the other. 

Mastering this technique is my hope for a future of pain free running, as my knee is short a significant amount of cartilage.
