comment When running with toe-first technique, should heels touch the ground?
Just as an aside, true "toe running" (Where the heel never hits) has really only come about in running circles since the advent of Chi/Pose. After all, if some is good, more is better, right?

comment How can I gain weight?
Most of the answers have good advice. However, I will caution you on people telling you that you "look anorexic", or listening to others opinions on your body. Someone will ALWAYS be telling you that you look <insert description here>. If you are eating healthy, exercising and maintaining weight, then you are most likely just fine. If you are worried about it at all, see your doctor and/or a nutritionist. You're still growing, and that's nothing to mess with. Bad nutrition at this stage can have more impact than just weight.

Yes, I'd be skeptical until I saw an x-ray confirming the extra vertebrae.

comment How to properly strap an ankle for soccer
Unless you are injured, I would not recommend random taping of the ankle. Tape jobs if they are not tight can cause their own injuries. Also, if the tape is not completely tight/flat, wrinkles can cause discomfort and blisters. Finally, there are specific taping jobs that are designed for specific injuries (For example the taping job for an inversion sprain is different than an eversion sprain, which is different than a plantar fasciitis support), and to do them wrong can cause injury. And, it's incredibly difficult to tape your own ankle well.

Braces have their own pluses and minuses. One of them being that they often cause an injury unrelated to what is being protected, because they prevent all movement in a direction which has it's own complications. You also state you are against young athletes wearing braces, but then recommend it?
