Baima says common injuries include:
Greater trochanteric pain syndrome: The greater trochanter is the part of the thigh bone that pokes out to the side.
Anterior knee pain: This refers to pain in the front of the knee. It can come from a meniscal tear or arthritis, but the most common problem in runners is poor tracking of the knee cap with repetitive bending and straightening of the knee.
Stress fractures: They usually occur in the feet and shins.
Plantar fasciitis: The irritation of the soft tissue that covers the bottom of the foot.
Subungual hematoma: A bruise under the toenail
