The feet of runners are notoriously temperamental, frequently staging rebellions in which they stop running, run too slowly, or run quickly but straight toward angry wolverines. Placate pavement-pounding instigators with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of shoes and apparel at Run On!. Today's deal is valid at Run On!'s Dallas, Richardson, Coppell, and McKinney locations.
Named one of America's best running retailers by Competitor magazine, Run On! staffs a squad of footwear aficionados who are all learned practitioners of the running arts. Specializing in matching runners, joggers, and walkers with the perfect fit, the store's perfervid shoe purveyors meet with customers and perform a thorough podiatric investigation, gauging gates, assessing arches, and appraising pronation to ensure each foot is in fact a foot, and not a masquerading hand trying to escape its high-five duties.
After preparing for the perfect pairing, speed-striders are given their run of the extensive collection of ballyhooed brands, including Asics, Brooks, New Balance, and Nike. Shoes range in price from $90 to $140, so this Groupon won't cover the full cost of shoes, but Run On! stocks a full line of running accessories and apparel, such as the women's Epiphany short ($36.99) or the men's Infiniti Notch short ($45.99), both by Brooks. Feetures socks (most styles are $9.99) and Nathan Quickdraw Plus water bottles ($9.99) further help prepare runners for dashes toward finish lines and sprints toward platters of cupcakes.
