What You'll Get
Though running from your troubles will only make them worse, it's a great way to lose weight while stealing pies. Leave pie chefs in the dust with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of shoes and athletic gear at The Running Company's West 5th St. or N. Capitol of Texas Hwy locations.
The Running Company, a store completely staffed by runners, finds people the fittingest shoes using a process similar to the one speed daters use to find future mates—taking measurements, assessing stance, and playing back video of them running on a treadmill. The shop carries top running-shoe brands including Nike, Asics, Mizuno, Newton, and Saucony, and shoes range in price based on their anti-ground ability, with many of them falling between $85 and $140. Much of the shop's stock includes specialty apparel for the lithe of leg that is not found in larger, upper-body sport stores. Some of these hard-to-find products could include Trigger Point massage products, CEP compression socks, and Marathon Coffee, a high-caffeine blend developed specifically for runners, but often used to assist slow-moving baby sea turtles crawling from their just-cracked eggs across the beach in search of the sea.
