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 Florida Running Company in Coconut Grove.
The Florida 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 such as Asics Gel Kayano ($140) and Nike Air Pegasus ($85). Runners can complement their kicks with Nike Tempo track shorts ($28) or swaddle their feet in a pair of Balega socks ($10), as soft and comforting as group hug from every grandmother on the block.
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 and CEP compression socks.
