Running Shoes and Injuries

“We’ve evolved to run on compliant surfaces, not on asphalt or concrete. You run on something hard, your body has to work that much harder to help absorb those forces, and that can lead to stresses and strain, wear and tear, really throughout the whole body.” - Dr. D. Casey Kerrigan, professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation (The unglamorous truth about running shoe technologies BY ROME JORGE Lifestyle Editor, Manila Times)

MY COMMENT: More negative press about conventional running shoes, but there is little doubt about the need for protection when running on hard surfaces. Run the trails whenever you can.
