Shoe Cushioning Influences the Running Injury Risk According to Body Mass

Laurent Malisoux, PhD of the Luxembourg Institute of Health is our guest for this Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast. Dr. Malisoux is the Leader of the Physical Activity, Sport & Health research group with expertise in sports injury prevention, running biomechanics, physical activity assessment, and exercise physiology. He completed his PhD in 2006 at the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), focusing on the impact of training and unloading on contractile properties of single human muscle fibers. After having worked a few years for a private company specializing in human performance evaluation, training, and rehabilitation, he received a grant in Luxembourg for a post-doc project on injury prevention in youth sport. In recent years, his research has focused on the prevention of running-related injuries, as well as on the objective measurement of physical activity in the general population. He has conducted 3 randomized controlled trials investigating the effect of specific shoe features on injury risk in leisure-time runners, incorporating epidemiological and biomechanical approaches.

It’s time for the 2020 Staff Photo Contest!

With summer in full swing, it’s time to get outside and enjoy being active! But don’t forget to take some photos because it’s time again for the annual Mountain Land Staff Photo Contest!

We are looking for fun, exciting, high-quality images that reflect the lifestyles of our team members, patients, families, and friends. These should be photos that reflect Mountain Land’s mission to restore, support, and promote healthy lifestyles! Just like last year, we will only be accepting photos that show people being active such as hiking, running, biking, etc.

The winning photos will be included in the upcoming 2021 Mountain Land Calendar, and the photographers will each be rewarded with a $50 gift card!

Click here to enter your photos!

Here are some tips for making a winning photo:

Get people in your photo, but capture them in an activity, not just smiling for the camera. It can also be a photo of you in an active setting. Silhouettes and shots from behind are great because it lets people imagine they are there in the scene. Just no scenery photos.

Only submit wide (landscape) orientation photos. Tall (portrait) orientation photos don’t fit in our calendar template.

Submit the best quality, highest file-size copy you have. Instagram photos look great on phones but they are much too small for printing on a calendar.

Our team is comprised of talented people that maintain active lifestyles, and we want to capture that in this year’s contest. We look forward to seeing all of your amazing images, good luck!
