Whether you’re gearing up for a marathon or just want to run longer distances, there are some things you can do to avoid foot injuries.

Finding a couple of good running shoes to rotate between is important, say podiatrists.

Since all running shoes are different, changing up which ones you wear periodically can break up the repetitive stress running puts on your feet.

Runners are urged to see a podiatrist if they experience swelling or bruising that doesn’t go away with home remedies.

Before your run, build up your foot strength by doing daily exercises and stretches.
