Squat Don't Stretch

If you feel the need to stretch before a run - let's do a set of squats. It'll 'stretch' the body at all the right places and angles.

I agree 100%!  "Stretching" is dead, mobilizing joints through their normal range of motion is smart.  Squats do that, and warm the muscles and get the heart rate started on its way up - the smart athlete's warmup all the way around.
