One of my good friends convinced me to sign up for a half-marathon this January. I started my training program just last week, so the news that Fit2Run, The Runner’s Superstore, is coming to Downtown Disney this fall comes at a perfect time.
Whether you’re a reluctant runner (like me) or an elite athlete, the store can help you find your perfect fit in athletic footwear. Sharon Jacobson, Fit2Run Brand Director, tells me they will offer a complimentary video-taped gait analysis and an iStep barometric scanning, which will help each guest find the ideal shoe for their foot. Guests can also test the footwear on Fit2Run’s indoor track, just to make sure the new pair is ‘just right.’ Still want more? At this particular store, Fit2Run will offer first releases on many shoes, with some special products available only at this location.
Don’t be surprised if you see co-owners Bill Robinson and his son, Parks, at the new store for one of their in-store events, clinics or new product introductions. Both avid runners, the two founded the company in 2006 and couldn’t be more excited about this venue. Fit2Run is set to open next month – just in time for the holidays – at Downtown Disney West Side, next to Curl and across from House of Blues.
Look for me when you visit. By early November, I’ll be hitting the pavement pretty hard and just may need a new pair of shoes.
Are you training for a big race, too? Let me know in the comments below and we can motivate each other; I need all the inspiration I can get!
