How Healthy are Your Feet?

How Healthy are Your Feet?

Most of what we now know about foot health—true foot health, that is—comes from scholarly writings that were published, in some cases, well over 100 years ago. These studies, along with the wisdom we have gained from unshod or minimally shod populations, are crucial to our understanding of what constitutes normal, healthy foot anatomy and how to preserve this beautiful, spade-foot shape through adulthood and well into old age.

Keep your Cool in the Summer Sizzle

Keeping cool so that you can properly hydrate and fuel throughout the day should  take priority. Heat mitigation is all about balance. Many runners new to the heat running scene think, “I’ll just up my water intake,” they would likely dehydrate quickly and wind up with a screaming headache or worse. While most folks think of running and racing in the heat in terms of survival (definitely the priority), it is possible to stay relatively comfortable in sweltering conditions.
