Running is a healthy activity for body and mind, unless it involves jogging while reading baseball star Mark McGwire's first romance novel. Improve your running experience and move on to Mr. McGwire's later works with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of athletic apparel, merchandise, and accessories at Homewood Sporting Goods in Homewood.
