thewalkahead.com will look at ways walking, running, paddling and moving forward with human power in general can often lead us to learn more about ourselves and our world.
As a podiatrist I have a special interest in how we ambulate and use our feet for moving about. Personally I enjoy hiking and trail running with some occasional back packing and more recently, paddling either a canoe or kayak. I have been contributing articles about foot health as it relates to hiking and related issues (articles about shoes, hiking poles) and some general hiking health related articles (how to stay hydrated) for The Trail Walker, the official publication of the New York/New Jersey Trail Conference publication. Some of these articles are archived at http://www.nynjtc.org and some are available at http://www.suffernpodiatry.com. I also serve as the parent advisor for a high school Outdoors Club.
