Without the proper gear to identify their vocation, track stars are often assumed to be pursued by vengeful spirits. Keep ahead of the invisible crowd with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of running shoes and athletic apparel at Born to Run, with locations in Spring House and Lafayette Hill.
The impassioned pavement pounders and foot beglovers at Born to Run set inner chariots on fire with a tinderbox of name-brand running shoes, athletic clothes, and sundry accessories. The Oasis 2 from Fitflop ($50) combines the company's patented muscle-toning Microwobbleboard with soft, lustrous suede, straddling the divide between fashion and practicality along with stylish foot-envelopes from Asics, Adidas, and Saucony, among others. Born to Run also peddles essential accessories like heart-rate monitors, athletic socks, and motivation-pumping carrots to dangle before reluctant runners.
