Injury Prevention & Recovery:
 
Now that Fall Marathon Training season is in full swing, a lot of us FIT professionals are starting to feel the aches and pains coming on.  I'm battling a case of the infamous Plantar Fasciitis, Joe is riding out a little hitch in his knee, and Emily is fighting a mysterious and unidentified muscle tightness.  The great thing about all of us working at Fleet Feet Sports is that we have an intimate understanding of our injury prevention products and are able to keep our respective issues under control as we continue to train.  Although we all have different pains in different places, we all use self-massage products to keep ourselves off the sidelines.  Saturday, August 29th Joe Henkels, our in house Addaday and Trigger Point expert, is going to be leading an interactive clinic to demonstrate how to use self-massage to keep your aches, pains, and injuries at bay.  I highly recommend coming out to learn about this invaluable tool whether you're new to self-massage or want a better understanding of how to use your current self-massage tool of choice.  Register Here!

Running Partner:
Finding The Right One
Buddying up with another runner can be a powerful way to rev up to your routine, and boost the quality of your running life. The miles roll by faster when you're chit-chatting away. You won't blow off that morning workout when you know that someone is waiting for you, so you'll be more likely to keep your training on track. Plus, the person can push you to go faster or fitter than you might go on your own. But finding the right training partner is just as difficult as finding a mate for any other area of your life. You have to shop around. Here are some tips for finding and sustaining a running relationship that can endure.
