Improper shoe sizing and shape are the primary cause of ingrown toenails, bunions, corns, hammer toes and hallux valgus. Shoes that don’t fit your feet correctly can also lead to muscular imbalances in the body, opening the door to foot, knee and hip injuries. Take a look at this article from Runners World discussing the importance of proper running shoe fit: https://www.runnersworld.com/advanced/a20796654/proper-shoe-fit/

Earlier this week, we shared recipes for pumpkin muffins. After all, isn't pumpkin spice kind of it's own season. We have winter, spring, summer and pumpkin spice. But we know that not everyone loves it. It seems that nobody is on the fence with their feelings for pumpkin spice. You either love it or you hate it. So, which is it, do you LOVE pumpkin spice or do you HATE pumpkin spice. We're curious to see which will get more votes.
