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 running gear and shoes at Louisiana Running Company.
Louisiana Running Company supplies gallopers with everything they need, from expert advice on essential running gear to a pair of perfectly fit sneakers. Led by two knowledgeable owners, both former LSU runners, the helpful staff boasts the ability to equip athletes with what they need to get in shape or sprint more efficiently when trying to catch a bus. In addition to picking up running apparel ($35 on average), watches ($50 on average), and socks ($10 on average), shoppers can also apply the value of this deal toward shoes ($110 on average) from popular brands such as Brooks, New Balance, Puma, and Etonic. The shop's comprehensive fitting process helps match patrons with their ideal shoes, examining past injuries, and measuring feet before capturing video of the customer’s jogging style for a slow-motion analysis.
On selected Wednesday evenings, Louisiana Running Company hosts a running group, which welcomes new members. The group typically leaves from the store at 6:30 p.m., fostering a supportive and social environment in which to get exercise, improve your stamina and speed, and practice for a stage reenactment of the Rocky training sequence.
