In many running circles around the country, October is known as Marathon Month. In a quick count on the Marathon Maniacs website, there are 63 marathons this month in the United States. That's a lot of marathons.
Of course, the big one for many Central Oregonians is the Portland Marathon tomorrow, in, well, Portland. We've seen lots of you in the 6 months that we've been open (today is our 6 month anniversary!), diligently following your training schedules. We have enjoyed following all of your stories, and we absolutely love it when you stop by. Whether it's to get fit for new shoes, talk about the lastest nutrition stuff on the market, pick our brains about training, tell us about little (and sometimes, not-so-little) niggles and injuries, or to share with us that awesome training run you just did in a new p.r., we love it all.
So when you get done with Portland (or any other marathon), and your legs are able to function enough so you can walk into the store, please stop by and tell us your Portland war story. We're excited to hear it.
And if you bring in a picture of you at your marathon wearing a Fleet Feet shirt, you'll get $10 off your next pair of running shoes.
