Without proper footwear to identify them, track stars are often assumed to be frightened paranormal experts fleeing unbusted ghosts. Keep ahead of the invisible crowd with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of running shoes, apparel, and accessories at Running Center in Carlsbad. This Groupon is only valid at the Running Center location in Carlsbad, and in-store prices vary from online prices.
Running Center's staff of enthusiastic sprinters arm feet to burn rubber with kicks from a number of name brands. Tootsies tear through track meets and catch up to celebrity cheetahs in pairs of running shoes for men or women, available in many styles, colors, and sizes ($90–$185). Runners ward off thirst with accessories such as a hydration belt ($25) or lace systems, which keep sneakers secure and colorful ($7.95) while men's short-sleeve shirts ($35+) turn away moisture like a mummy's bodyguard. Running Center's knowledgeable employees are avid athletes themselves and do not work on commission, fostering a relaxed environment that helps the customer obtain the ideal shoe.
Since 1977, Running Center has attested that no one should have to "break in" new shoes. Staff members endeavor to find pairs that suit sprints immediately, adjusting their picks based on the size, width, and pronation—a joint's habit of rotating past a neutral position—of each client's feet. They haven't learned this science simply by training; the employees are all athletes themselves, and they rely on a common passion for fitness rather than a commission goal as they recommend footwear. They help customers avoid injuries by answering questions on the shop's stock and on running in general, addressing common topics such as gait and how to stave off coffee spills on your morning jog.
Specialty shoes range from trail-running sneakers to racing flats and cross-country spikes. With choices from Nike, New Balance, Asics, and other brands, customers can experiment with different support systems that align with their body and lifestyle.
