That's it! I'm not sure that I have any significant torsion, but it does seem my natural running gait is flawed. I've been trying to focus on flexing my glutes when I walk. It's like you said in your reply: it's like learning to walk all over again. It also feels more efficient.

It also gives you a great butt. Chicks digg the runner butt.

Are you doing butt exercises? Have you found them to help? I have the last couple days, and I have more soreness than I thought was possible for my legs. I'm optimistic this will help, and while I'm silently freaking out about a half in six weeks and full in 13.5, it is what it is, and I'll do the best I can.

Yep! Lower body day at the gym always includes Glute work. A few times a week at home I do Theraband exercises targeting my glutes, hips, and ankles. All the weak spots. They've been instrumental to recovering from any injury I've encountered and generally running stronger.
