A few bargains worth mentioning:
- This is cool in more ways than one: TrySports, a running/cycling/triathlon store in the Blakeney Shopping Center (9830 Rea Road, Suite H), will give a free three-pack of Zulu socks from Balega (a $20 value) to anyone who mentions my blog when they purchase a new pair of shoes. Of TrySports' fitting process, store spokesman Joe Soehnlen says, "We do a complete arch analysis, coupled with a video gait analysis where we use Dartfish software to analyze each individuals running (or walking) gait cycle to determine their true stride pattern and to aid us in determining the correct shoe for each individual. Translation? They'll find a shoe that fits you perfectly.
- Last week, I wrote about the Road ID, a line of identification tags for runners, joggers, cyclists/bicyclists, etc. Now through May 10, you can get $2 off the $20 price tag when you order yours. Click here to buy; the link should automatically set you up for the discount, but if not, just enter PCAP14 at checkout in the coupon code field.
- Running Warehouse, a good place to get gear online, is holding a 72-hour, 25-percent-off "progressive" sale on its top-selling running shoes, apparel and accessories. Additional products will be added on Thursday and yet more on Friday. They're also offering free two-day shipping and free return shipping. Click here to take advantage. Sale ends Monday.
- Run for Your Life is offering customers who have either good golfing skills or dumb luck a chance to win a free pair of WrightSocks, which are known for their blister prevention. The promotion is running during store hours Thursday through Saturday, and is being held in conjunction with "Golf Week." (Can't figure out why the company is doing a golf tie-in, but whatever -- free stuff! Woohoo!) For a store directory, click here.
