Your feet aren’t off the clock once your run is done. Whether you’re walking, standing, or moving about, your feet are on the job most all day long. Ever tracked your steps outside of your runs and walks? With work, school, errands, and just living… time on your feet can add up pretty fast.
When it’s finally time to kick up your feet, take a few more steps – figuratively, of course – to really treat your feet. Here are some ways runners like you go the extra mile for their feet, after going a few miles on their feet!
