Not so hard to route around trail closures, flooding, fire, and other basic stuff like that. You are motivated after all! But what when the obstacle is internal, a failure of your own body? Metatarsalgia, or pain at the ball of the foot is a common ailment among runners. Don’t get mad at your own body, instead get smart about taking care of it.

Metatarsalgia Shoe InsolesThe metatarsal bones are located at the middle of the foot and end at the ball. These bones carry the weight of the body as a person walks. Extra pressure can cause the metatarsal bones to press the skin beneath creating pain and inflammation at the ball of the foot. Since you can’t make gravity go away while running, unless of course you are Tim Peake, who ran the London marathon on the space station, then your best option is to control symptoms of the condition, and let yourself heal.
