you tell me where you are and ask where I am on your footnote:
I am in the same place as you and everything else in the universe!
That is at the centre of the universe.

These videos show good footage of elite runner's biomechanics - yes, also good footage of foot strike patterns as well. It was taken during the 2012 U.S Olympic Trials.
The first is during the woman's 5 000m - at lap 10 (hence near the finish)...
Putting aside foot strike patterns (i.e. midfoot vs. heel)... it certainly helps highlight the degree of force/velocity the lower limb must endure... particularly when assessing the leader of the second pack (in the blue & silver spikes - starting at about 24 sec. into footage).
The second is during the men's 10 000m - at lap 8. This footage is from the side; I feel it would have been better if the footage was taken from the same angle as the woman's 5000m footage.
