San Francisco, California, United States — Last spring, Ian Sharman, a running coach and an Altra-sponsored ultrarunner, injured his calf muscle and couldn’t run for a month. But he could still walk. That led him to put in 60 to 70 miles a week at a pedestrian pace; he even walked the full Los Angeles Marathon. The next year, at only a month back into his sport, he PRed his marathon time and came in at a stunning 2:21.
Sharman credits his success to walking, which he still uses to supplement his running (even when he’s not injured).
