The staffers at A Runner's Mind don’t just sell the shop’s precision athletic gear; they use it, too. Avid runners themselves, they prime visitors for efficient jogs or invigorating sprints with an array of apparel and hands-on training sessions. They help customers find their new sole mates with professional gait analysis, taking measurements and scrutinizing steps ranging from slow walks to full-speed runs before suggesting potential shoes from makers including Asics, Mizuno, Saucony, and New Balance. The shop also stocks equipment, helping customers stock up on water bottles, reflective vests, Nike, and The North Face running gear. In addition to hawking sportswear, the shop’s fitness experts devise 15- to 18-week training plans through their ARM Academy program, helping runners meet personal goals such as completing their first 5K or outrunning the world's slowest cheetah. The family-owned shop's commitment to running extends beyond its walls and into the local athletic community, with staffers often offering assistance at track meets and high-school events throughout the area.
All Fired Up has been helping folks unleash their creativity since 1985 with paint-your-own pottery services. They offer a wide selection of ceramic pieces waiting to be festooned in whatever design the artist sees fit. Children's pieces, which include banks and novelty boxes, promise fun and simple ways for kids to express themselves. Other pieces include plates, mugs, cookie jars, vases, and bowls that give painters a chance to work with a larger canvas. All Fired Up hosts parties where kids and adults can convene in the studio and spend an afternoon or evening painting their own pieces without having to worry about making a mess at home or being reprimanded by a restaurant manager.
For Books Inc., it's been a long road, and if you trace the lines back to its origins, it's California's oldest bookstore. After striking gold?literally?back in 1851, Anton Roman set up shop as a bookseller. Although the shop moved, was sold, burned down, changed hands again, and was rebuilt, the spirit remained intact, and today, multiple locations of the indie bookstore have sprouted up across The Golden State. Staff members keep the shelves lined with classic and contemporary tomes in all genres, and a myriad of book clubs help keep the love of literature alive. They also run a vibrant event program featuring author events and readings where patrons can enjoy an experience they can't download.
