Where to shop Posted: Wed Jan 19, 2005 10:31 am 

Lately I've been doing most of my shopping for running gear at the local SportMart, which seems to have a pretty good selection of shirts, shorts, etc. RoadRunner sports is good for speciality items, although their prices aren't always the best. For shoes, I usually search out some no-name place that has a good deal on what I need, like efootwear.com. There are many other online running stores I haven't tried, but I'm a little bit reluctant to buy clothes and such online if I've never seen them before "in the flesh".

I won't buy something for the first time on-line, but if it's something i already have or am replacing, etc I'll buy it on-line at a better price. Other than road runner that i use on a regular basis,

i've gotten some tights and other odds and ends from http://www.shoebuy.com/

i've love getting my sports drinks and bars, etc from http://www.trisports.com/

i've used http://www.nationalrunningcenter.com/store/home.asp as well

I should go into business selling energy gels and bars online. Those things are ridiculously expensive. Even at the scammiest-looking places, gels are rarely under $1 apiece.
