    Muddy shoes can spread invasive species

    Traveling to trail races, camping adventures, or road trips are common activities during the warmer spring, summer, and fall months.

    Much effort is spent planning these outings, however it's been my personal experience that I've spent very little time considering how my traveling to different parts of the country for these outdoor activities impacts the nature that I am enjoying.

    For the same reason running in different pairs of shoes regularly may decrease overuse injuries, so can trail running - Different shoes, different terrains, etc all load the legs slightly differently. This spreads out the loading and impact forces to a wider range of body structures rather than hitting the same spot over and over again. Read More
