Running specialty store

Monday, August 26, 2013

I'm so excited about my first-ever visit to a running specialty store.

I first heard of such a thing in a Sparkpeople article about finding the perfect sneaker for you (see link to article below). The store I found near me promises a video gait analysis for free. I can't wait to find out whether I am overpronating or underpronating or what!

I already picked out a potential winner in an article I saw in Prevention magazine. They are ASICS cross-trainers "Gel Craze" and the article priced them at $85. We'll see if the store has them, and if they are right for me. I will be walking, jogging, kickboxing, among other things in them, so I'm guessing I'll need a cross-training shoe, not a running shoe.

I may stop by the store (Sole Sports Running Zone in Tempe, AZ) later today just to check it out and try some things on, maybe even have them do the analysis. I'm not ready to buy yet, but I am in suspense.
