IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER THAN LACING UP A NEW PAIR OF TRAINERS AND GOING FOR A RUN?
A great pair of shoes cannot be understated and a proper pair of shoes can help mitigate possibilities of injuries and even help you perform at the next level. We want all runners to start this year (and decade) on the right foot; it doesn’t matter if you know what ‘footstrike’ means or if you know exactly what type of arch support you need – we’ve got you covered.
On Sunday, January 26th, our team of pros will help you find the right shoes! We will have the team from Potomac River Running in to help guide you to various brands and options, reps from ON to show you some of their swag AND running form experts from MovementX to inspect your mechanics and running gait. This will help ensure your shoes fit with your body, form and mechanics. This event will be open to the entire athletic community (that’s right, you don’t have to be a member), and be hands-on, so come ready to test drive a few pairs. You can even purchase onsite!
The first hour will be dedicated to educating you about the importance of picking the correct shoe, issues that arise with wearing the wrong shoes, etc. The remainder of the event will be dedicated to finding you the perfect running shoe!
