I am new to running. I want to get running shoes just don't know where to get them at. Any one give me any ideas on where to go in Olympia Washington?

Definitely get fitted at a running store - make sure they have the ability to do gait analysis - where you can actually see what you are doing.

DEFINITELY get fit at a good running store! Don't go in with any preconceptions about Brand or style.

The nice thing is too, that most have a 30 day return policy if they don't work out.

What works for one person may not work for another. My suggestion is to get fitted at a running store. A good store will look at the shape of your feet, analyze your gait, and make several recommendations based on that. Getting the right amound of cushioning and stabilization for your particular needs can make a huge difference in preventing injury.
