Originally from Upstate NY, I attended Georgia Tech on academic scholarship to study biomedical engineering, and I was fortunate to be able to compete on the D1 cross country/ track and field team beginning my sophomore year. Growing up I was heavily involved in athletics, yet plagued by foot injuries beginning at just 9 years old.
Rather than look to immediate solutions for my overuse injuries, I became enamored with the why.
I realized it wasn't so much my current shoes that was causing injury, but the way I ran because I grew up wearing shoes. I needed to change my foot strike and subsequently my entire gait, but I didn't even know where to start.
When I get onto something, I can't stop. I've spent years researching the why, and years more determining the solution. I'm proud to say I've been injury free since I started to wear Celer.
