The staff at both Born to Run locations know firstfoot what’s important in a good running shoe. Every Wednesday and Thursday morning before opening up shop, they slip on their footwear of choice and lead group runs. They share their passion for running and their knowledge of quality footwear with the marathoners, joggers, and walkers that amble through their doors. They pride themselves on having something for everybody, including minimalist, cross-trainer, and high-cushioned shoes from trusted brands such as Saucony, Adidas, Nike, and Brooks. In addition to equipping athletes with a wardrobe of reflective vests, sports bras, and Under Armour wear, Born to Run enhances daily runs with a host of accessories, such as GPS watches for mapping out jogging routes or remembering where you parked the hovercraft.
Regardless of which of the hundreds of Target Portrait Studio locations you meander into, you can always count on a similar experience. Tucked into Target retail locations throughout the nation, each studio boasts a staff of professional photographers, premium lighting equipment, and advanced digital cameras. The seasoned crew takes pains to customize photo sessions to suit each customer's vision, setting up desired backgrounds and props before guiding families and high-school seniors through a mélange of poses. Afterward, customers will work with a professional to personalize their portraits with different special effects and styles, such as black and white or sepia tone. They then pick up their physical portraits at the studio in 7–10 days. If they don't feel like holding their breath that long to see the final products, they can access the images in an online gallery within 24 hours of the session, at which point they can order extra prints for gifts, collages, and greeting cards.
When kids want to play Hot Lava Monster on a jungle gym, hone their athletic skills on shock-absorbent basketball courts, or swing for the sky on a backyard swingset, Superior Play Systems helps them on their way. The company creates play equipment crafted with safety in mind. Some of its trampolines, for example, come with safety enclosures to keep kids from accidentally jumping onto Pluto.
Swingsets are made from hardy California redwood and cedar; this durable craftsmanship is reflected in the company's warranties, which guard against everything from breakage to carpenter bees. And while the company's gear outfits backyards and playgrounds across the country, its staff also runs play centers, where kids can stop in for unstructured play or a birthday party.
The trainers at Competitive Edge Sports help aspiring athletes perfect every aspect of their game, from individual techniques to teamwork. In a 60,000 square foot facility made up of five courts, players sharpen their skills in full-sized basketball, volleyball, and futsal arenas, as well as a 6,000 square-foot training arena for practicing speed and agility. These spaces are used by students to train one-on-one or in small groups, compete in leagues and tournaments, and have races on Gatorade slip 'n slides.
