Running Specialty Retailer Guide

Whether you’re are a beginner or an experienced athlete, being fitted by a specialty running shop is paramount in the success of your fitness goals. Every athlete has a unique gait or stride that represents the mechanics of how his or her body moves. An efficient gait enables the body to naturally absorb the stresses of impact. By contrast, an inefficient gait can create undue stresses on the body, thus making it less comfortable to continue training or participate in races. Specialty running shops are well versed in custom fitting, using the latest footwear to compliment your gait and good mechanics.

By some accounts, one’s running and walking footwear is the single-most important piece of athletic equipment one can own. Therefore, for the 2018 Cap10K and your other fitness goals, invest in yourself and seek a properly fitted shoe from one of these respected local retailers.
