Get Pumped: Safety first, tip #8

Pay attention to your feet. Cuts and open areas on feet can be an entrance for infection-causing bacteria.  Wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes and socks. Open-toed shoes, sandals and flip flops are not recommended for exercise.  Pool/water shoes protect your feet during water activities.  Check your feet before and after exercise for reddened or open areas.  If you see anything irregular, contact your physician immediately.
