Fall marathon season is definitely upon us. How do we know? We seem to be getting more and more questions on a daily basis regarding INJURY PREVENTION! While running and training for a marathon can be one of the most incredible, fulfilling experiences of a lifetime, it’s also pretty rough on your body!
Luckily, we have forged amazing partnerships with local physical therapists to help take our product knowledge and running experience to a clinical level. Even better – many of these physical therapists come to our stores to host free clinics where they perform injury screenings and offer advice.
Here’s the great lineup of events we’ve got over the next few weeks:
