I first discovered KT tape when I injured myself training for my first Spartan Race which happened to be the beast. I was training to climb walls when I injured my left knee. The race was in five days and I was unable to place much weight on my left leg but I was determined to run that race!
A couple of days prior to the race I heard about KT tape and how it could be used to help my injury. I bought the tape and watched videos about how to apply it and wrapped my knee. Thanks to the KT tape I was able to achieve my goal of completing the Spartan Beast! I ended up going to the doctor after the race and found out I had fractured my Tibia.
I believe the KT tape supported my knee enough to complete the race.
