Podiatrist, Dr. Marybeth Crane, a life-long runner states, "trail running bolsters feet and ankles, which benefits hikers by preventing sprained or rolled ankles, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and shin splints. Plus, running gets you in top hiking shape by working quads, hamstrings, calves, glutes, hips, shoulders, and abs. Here’s how to use running to get in prime trail condition this season. 1. ABCs - Use your big toe to air-write the alphabet. The wide variety of movements improves flexibility and works foot and ankle muscles, both of which reduce your risk of sprains.

2. Towel crunches - To strengthen the interossei and lumbricals, the tiny toe muscles that provide stability for navigating uneven terrain, I recommends this exercise: Put your foot on a towel and scrunch or grab the towel with your toes (either seated or standing). Do it 10 times, take a 30-second break, and repeat twice. If this gets easy, try grabbing a pen or marker with your toes instead."
