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 $25, you get $55 worth of running shoes, apparel, and accessories at On a Shoestring, in Bradenton. On a Shoestring outfits runners in shoes, apparel, and gear to keep motoring humans moving in comfort and style. The store's staff of running enthusiasts, including many certified running coaches, matches customers with their predestined pairs using precise shoe fittings, arch-mapping wet tests, and treadmill-gait analysis. Finish-line seekers can choose from the store's bevy of brand-name jogging clogs, such as a pair of Brooks Adrenaline running shoes ($100 for both men's and women's styles) or New Balance 927 walking shoes ($114.99 for men and women). DownUnders orthotic footbeds ($37.99) add comfort and can help tame freewheeling ankles.

A Bodyglide antichafing stick ($5.99) draws a dividing line between close-quartered body parts, preventing them from irritating each other and providing years of anecdotes for when they someday get along. Other available accessories include sunglasses, watches, hydration systems, and nutrition supplements.
