How can I avoid smelly feet?


QTo celebrate my 50th birthday, I’m planning to run a marathon. The training is going well, but my feet stink! I tried some athlete’s foot powder, which helped a bit, but hasn’t fixed the problem.

A Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungal infection and fungi love warm, moist environmen­ts, so sweaty shoes are perfect. Get into the habit of taking off your runners as soon as you get in, stuff them with newspaper and leave to air. If you can, invest in a second pair. Only wear cotton socks, use a pH balanced shower gel and dry your toes thoroughly.
