On The Move With Pokémon Go

How To Put Your Best Foot Forward (and Keep It There)

It’s been over one week since Niantic Inc. released Pokémon Go, the app that puts you in the center of an augmented reality on a quest to catch as many Pokémon as you can. Since then, the numbers are staggering:

With the game’s release in both the United Kingdom and Germany taking place in the past 48 hours, and the impending release in India, the Philippines, Brazil and Japan, the ubiquity of the game shows no end.

A bonus benefit to the Pokémon craze? Reports of millions of self-defined sedentary gamers taking to the streets to walk distances ranging from a 5K to a full marathon (and more!). Exercise is good, right?

Yes. However, as any runner can attest, an increase in physical activity or intensity can result in injuries.
