Shameless Promoting!!!

I am not going to sugar coat this one for all you straight-shooting athletes out there…being injured SUCKS. There is nothing fun about putting in exuberant amounts of time and effort, training your heart out, to wake up one morning with a hint of something not right. You head out for your run and that confirms it, that something not right, is downright wrong. I hope there is someone out there who can’t relate to what I am saying because that means you have been blessed with an injury free running past which is almost as great an accomplishment as the insane miles we put in every week.

Whether you are a hundred-mile per week guy hammering the pavement every day or if you are new to the sport and just can’t seem to work the kinks out, learning how to prevent over-use-injuries as well as knowing how to assess and treat them are all fundamental basics of being a runner, at least if you want to stay a runner!
Since we know how defeating these injuries can be, we are calling in the experts to educate you on how to get rid of them if you got ‘em or how to stay on the straight and narrow of not getting ‘em!

Dr. Nilesh Shah from Summa Health and Wellness Institute will be here discussing common over-use injuries in runners and how to prevent them. His colleague, Terri Angelo, ATC, will also be here to inform us about Graston Technique. Graston Technique is a simple technology that is improving injury treatment and rehabilitation.

We hope you can come to the store to check out what these folks have to say!

Hey Ladies...Support'em and Be Active!

So we are doing this really cool thing with Moving Comfort. As you may know they are a sports bra specialty brand and we do really well with them and our bra fit process. Let me first clear the air with this statement: I know more about sports bras than I wish I did and yes, I actually can help women find the perfect bra for a very non-hands-on, distant sort of way...(awkward pause)...ITS TRUE! Most women are not in the correct size sports bra. In fact a correctly fit sports bra is just as important to a woman as her correctly fit running shoe...(awkward pause #2)

...Anyway...So Moving Comfort came to Fleet Feet with this really cool initiative. Lets make a really cool tee shirt with a real cool saying, sell it to active women, and give part of the money to a really cool organization that's dedicated to educating young women on the importance of being active! Awesome Right?! We thought so!

They just arrived today and they are very limited! So stop by and grab one for your self or your mom, or your sister or wife or girlfriend or any other non male figure in your life that you love. At the end of the day we thought that it would be a nice way to show our love for the ladies and encourage active lifestyles!

So that's all I got on that...(#3)...

Support Your Girls!

It is the time of year when a little motivation goes a long way. It has been cold, windy, snowy, and all around a typical Cleveland winter. This is a favorite around here to put a little fire in each of us to keep training and to put in the tough miles when you really don't want to.

A famous man once said "We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves. The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, 'You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.' The human spirit is indomitable."

So on those early mornings get up and be AWAKE!!!!
