Running shoes usually have logos that evoke the idea of speed, such as a swoosh, a cheetah driving a go-kart, or a child growing up. Be the fastest human you know with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of running shoes and gear at Capital City Running.
Steven and Gina Bernhardt, the husband-and-wife team behind Capital City Running, are enthusiastic runners who work with athletes of all skill levels to enhance their regimens with a supply of shoes, apparel, and gear. During an intensive shoe-fitting process, knowledgeable staffers examine videotape to gather information about each client's unique gait and prescribe the most appropriate shoe ($89.95–$139.95), selecting from popular brands such as Nike, ASICS, and New Balance. Sweat-wicking apparel ($29.95–$69.95) protects birthday suits during jogs, and water bottles ($9.95–$69.95), running socks ($8.50–$12.95), and mixtapes of cheering fan sounds make fitting gifts for dedicated runners.

The duo takes footwear very seriously, and helps runners get the most out of their stride with a fitting process that takes into account elements such as support, terrain, and gait. With the right shoes in hand—or, more reasonably, on feet—customers can build their running regime from the ground up with performance running socks, cold-weather running gear, and essential accessories such as water bottle belts and sunglasses.
