It’s marathon week, folks. Are you worried about your feet?

This year’s big race coincides with a four-day scientific meeting of foot and ankle specialists in Austin. When they finish with the business part of the 74th Annual Scientific Conference of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, some of the physicians will head to the finish line of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon to help runners whose feet hurt.

That’s a lot of toes to tend. More than 14,000 athletes are expected to compete in the race, which starts and finishes on Congress Avenue.
