When you are out for a run the mind often wanders. This may lead to many different types of thoughts. Some may be positive; "I am making myself better" or "I can't wait to smash my PR". Others are often negative; "Why do I do this to myself" or "I'll never get into shape". And many thoughts are just thoughts. When you are out training the mind often wonders to far off places and this blog in many ways is a way for runners to share those thoughts and listen to other runners who may have new and interesting thoughts for others.
Our store owes much of its success to our community. For decades our loyal runners have checked in to get new equipment and share their stories. Runners we helped to fit in high school often come back from college and let us know how their seasons have been going. Even new runners who have goals of being able to complete a certain distance come back to let us share in their personal achievement. Our brand is grounded in our community and it only feels right to create a place where community members can have an even greater voice in it.
This blog will serve as a place for runners to come together. You will see posts from many of the awesome members of our running clubs as well as employees of our stores. We will do product reviews, answer training questions and share our personal experiences while running. So please, take some time to share your thoughts and stories too. Running is a lot less boring when we do it together!
