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. This Groupon is valid at the Georgetown or Chevy Chase location.

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 shell across the beach in search of the sea.

Reviews

Yelpers and four Insider Pagers give The Running Company a four-star average:

  • What I loved best was that there is no pressure. While they went out of their way to fit me with a shoe that worked with my needs, they emphasized throughout that they did not need to make a sale that day, they just wanted me to find the kind of shoe I needed and help me enjoy running. – Alicia D., Yelp
  • GRC is definitely the equivalent establishment to sporting goods stores; their employees are extremely knowledgeable and patient, ensuring quality goods/service and client loyalty. I'll be back. – Karen T., Yelp
