The 37th annual Turkey Day run is coming up next week and Dr. Brown and family will be participating again. Dr. Brown had a nice article come out last year on Barefoot running. Dr. Brown has recently over the past few years adopted the barefoot running technique. He has run in the past few Cooper River Bridge Runs as well as the previous Turkey Day run. Barefoot running is not for everyone but has worked for Dr. Brown as well as a select group of our patients. Please take a look at the two links below. The first link is the article last year about Dr. Brown and barefoot running and the second link is information about the Turkey Day Run next week.
