Thank’s for all the new likes and followers who have joined into the discussion of running and injuries on Dr. Nick’s Running Blog over the past 2 days. I’m not exactly sure what has happened, but the site has generated and enormous amount of attention over the past 48 hours and I would like to thank everyone for reading. Dr. Nick’s Running Blog typically generates anywhere from 200-300 hits a day. In the last 48 hours it has received more then 33,000 hits!! Most likely this is due to my support over at Facebook.

For those of you who are new to my blog, I am a podiatrist specializing in foot and ankle surgery as well as a long distance runner. The focus of Dr. Nick’s Running Blog is to discuss all aspects of running ranging from improving fixing an injury to improving your race times. Some of the topics are nutrition, fueling during a marathon, training patterns, recovering from an injury, as well as running gear reviews. Being a podiatrist, I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to test running shoes and provide my reviews of them. My focus is on minimalist shoes but I will review other shoes and they are not limited to running. Without going into a detailed discussion on my viewpoint of shoes and orthotics, my belief is that running patterns, form, and varying intensity is far superior to reducing and fixing running injuries then shoes alone.
I’d love for the discussion and dialogue that has been occurring over the past several days to continue as we all learn from it. Please feel free to post some questions on my blog and I’ll do my best to answer them. I appreciate all the likes on my Facebook page as well. All my blog posts will show up here. Thanks again and I look forward to continuing to chat with all the runners out there in the universe!!! It’s been fun!!
