    Any tips for Walkers for the Peachtree in July?

    • Dr. Mason

      Hey Ann,

      I’d recommend you stay well hydrated and wear appropriate clothing on race day. Make sure to have walked at least 5 miles at least once before the Peachtree. This will help ensure that your body has been adequately prepared for the event.

      Thanks for your question,
      Dr. Mason

    Dr. Mason, I’m training for the Peachtree Road Race and two weeks ago I jammed my pinky toe. Is there anything I can do to reduce the pain aside from ibuprofen?

    • Dr. Mason

      Typically when I sustain an injury like a jammed toe, ibuprofen and ice is the way I go. Buddy taping the smaller toe to the one beside can also help by acting as a splint and may help with the pain. Tylenol is actually a good pain reliever as well. Although please keep in mind, I can’t speak to your specific injury or level of pain without seeing you in person. Hope this helps!
