Caring for Active Feet
Dr. Jason Denton, Deaconess Clinic Podiatry
Welcome runners! This article is all about keeping YOUR feet healthy and feeling good. Not only am I a podiatrist, but I’m also an avid runner. I’ve been a runner for about 6-7 years, since I started in podiatry school. I lost about 100 pounds before I started running, and so I took up running to keep it off. The first timed race I ever did was the Des Moines (Iowa) Half Marathon. I’ve ran numerous races since then—4 full marathons, 3 ultra marathons (50k, 50 mile), and numerous half marathons. I’m sharing some helpful tips—both personal and professional--about keeping your feet healthy.
