Hello, my name is Dr. John Senatore. I am a runner, marathoner and Podiatrist at the Union Memorial Sports Medicine Center. Running a marathon is not an easy task. You must be committed to your training program putting in the appropriate time and mileage. If you enter a marathon under trained, I can guarantee, that you will not cross the finish line. If you over train for a marathon there is a good chance that you will never make it to the starting line. The reason: overuse injury. Most runners have suffered with an overuse injury at some point in their running career. Overuse injuries are a direct result of repeated micro-trauma to the muscles, joints and bones to the lower extremities. If you are suffering with painful knees, shins, ankles or feet. Come visit us at one of our two offices. Let us help you cross that finish line Have a great run!!
