Running has become an increasingly popular activity for exercise among people of all ages. In fact, 60 million people in the United States participate in running activities each year. People participate in running activities for numerous reasons, including improving fitness, weight concerns, running a race/competition, staying healthy, and having fun.
While running has many benefits, about 50% of people get injured yearly. Running injuries can be caused by poor running technique, reduced strength and flexibility, improper footwear, and overuse.
