Going back to stretching before I run

A few weeks ago I decided to stretch after I run. I always do some basic stretches immediately after I run, and I thought I'd do my strengthening exercises later in the day. It hasn't worked out very well. I usually forget to do the stretches later in the day, and after my long runs, my body is too stiff to stretch :) So, I'm going back to the pattern I've used for 34 years of doing all of the stretches in my picture page before I run and doing the basic stretches for calves, quads, IT band, and hams immediately after I run.
