One of the most common injuries we see and talk about here at Track Shack is Plantar Fasciitis (PF).  I suffered with this when I was just 17 years old and barely 100 pounds.  In the seventies there wasn't much known about PF and certainly running shoes had a lot to be desired.  That being said, I love helping customers with this injury, probably because I understand the pain oh so well. 
When a customer comes in we often can spend more time than doctors explaining and helping with their pain.  We encourage different stretching,  wearing the correct shoes 24/seven and how to sleep.  Sounds crazy, huh?  My favorite trick involves pillows.  I like to explain the size of pillow and why and where it goes.  Recently I had to remind myself to use my pillow trick because my old friend, PF, gave me a little scare.  Thankfully I caught it early and my pillow trick did the trick :)  

See you on the roads!
