PODIATRIST STATES THAT JOINT PAIN IS EXACERBATED FOR ULTRARUNNERS

PODIATRIST DR. DAVID HANNAFORD STATES, "WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BODY WHEN YOU RUN LONG DISTANCES? BETTER YET, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE RUN AN ULTRAMARATHON, WHICH IS ANY DISTANCE THAT SURPASSES THE 26.MILE MARK?  HERES THE SCIENCE BEHIND WHAT SOME CALL THE INSANITY."

PODIATRIST HANNAFORD STATES ,"THE AVERAGE ULTRARUNNER LANDS ON HIS OR HER FEET NEARLY 5,000 TIMES AN HOUR.  STUDIES FIND THAT THE NORMAL RUNNER LANDS ABOUT 90 STRIDES PER MINUTE, BUT MY EXPERIENCE WITH ULTRARUNNING REVEALS A SLOWER AVERAGE BECAUSE OF WALKING AND FATIGUE.  BECAUSE OF THIS, JOINT PAIN IS EXACERBATED FOR ULTRARUNNERS, AN EXTREME THAT SOME MARATHONERS MAY NEVER EXPERIENCE."
