A few days ago I posted a piece called ” The Running Store.” Upon further review, as they say in the NFL, I think that the title is somewhat misleading and so I need to clear up any confusion.
The Running Store does not really sell running. But maybe it does.
“I’d like to see some thing a 5K please.” Or ” I need a couple of 5 milers and a 10 K.”
“Sure the 5k’s are in aisle 3 and the 10k’s are right next to them in aisle 4. I can put you in a nice little country 5 miler next weekend for a song.”
“The ultras – we keep those in the back under lock and key. They’re not for everyone you know.”
” I think you’ll find this marathon bold and a little arrogant but with a touch of whimsy. It’s got good crowd support and the finisher’s medal is a beauty.”
” This 10 miler is a nice little charity run. It features some daunting hills. It’s got a taste of fall but with an end of summer flavor.”
” If you are looking for a nice tidy distance I recommend this particular half. It has everything you need in a half. Hills, long flat straightaways and a nice trail section through the county park. It’s big, it’s bold, it’s a city run with a small town heart. ”
” Jogging? Right over there.”
Maybe The Running Store does really sell running after all. Doesn’t it?
