KNOWING YOUR FEET
On Wednesday, July 21st from 5-7pm, Dr. Steven Kominsky will be at the Chevy Chase Running Company providing free screenings of people's feet.

This innovative and modern technology helps determine one's foot type, where the greatest amount of pressure is felt throughout the course of the foot and helps determine potential injury or pain areas.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the most vital aspect of any runner's body, THE FEET. The doctor is in the house to council you on your feet and answer all questions to the best of his ability. Come to the Chevy Chase Running Company and learn something new about how to improve your running!
