Running is a sport that has its hazards — both serious and sometimes silly. I can live with side effects like a terrible running watch tan that never goes away and having too many shoes strewn about, but injuries are another story. Sure, they’re part of just about every physical activity, but I realize I’m not a high school kid who can bounce back from nearly everything anymore. Now, I’m actively trying to prevent myself from getting hurt, and all it took was a little bit of divine Strava intervention.
