Foot Woes And A More Calendar Updates

Sore Puppies
Plantar fasciitis is the bane of many runners, burdening them with persistent foot pain that makes training a painful chore.  Treatment has typically been based on the assumption that it’s an inflammation of the connective tissue on the bottom of the foot.  Some recent work suggests that there is a degenerative component to the condition.  Which means that once you have plantar fasciitis, you may have it forever.

More Calendar
The calendar is as up to date as I can get it.  In addition to running races, I’ve included multisport events like triathlons and duathlons, bike rides and adventure races.  Use the comments section to let me know if I missed any of your favorites.
