  • Peroneal Tendon Injuries Peroneal tendon injuries often occur with ankle sprains and are commonly overlooked until your ankle pain becomes chronic. The peroneal tendons stabilize the outside of your foot and ankle.
  • What is in Your Sock Drawer? I get asked everyday about the types of running shoes people should buy, but what about socks? Why do we ignore a very basic part of our running gear?
  • Running Injuries are Not Inevitable Runners and injuries just seem to go together; you rarely have one without the other. Over 90% of runners reported missing a workout due to an injury within the last year.
  • Walking is a Great Way to Start Running! So you don't think that running is a realistic goals for you? A marathon might as well be a trip to Mars? Walking is a great start to a running program!

  • You Know Your Are a Runner When... It never ceases to amaze me how I can travel to another part of the country or the world and instantly make new friends with other runners.
  • Which is Better? Ice, Heat, or Beer for Injury Rehab? Seriously, I crawl over the finish line and the first thing I want is a beer (or twenty)! All right, all funny aside, how about the ice versus heat question?

  • Got Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness? It's the day after the marathon. You get out of bed feeling like you should have gotten the license plate of the truck that just ran over you. You find you can walk small steps but notice you can go upstairs but downstairs is nearly impossible.Does this sound familiar?

What did you do wrong? How could you have done differently so this post-race soreness wasn't so acute? Or is this the price you pay for a fast time? Let's explore delayed onset muscle soreness.
