New Friends In Athens: Athens Running Company
So if you haven't checked out Athens Running Company in the Bottleworks on Prince Street then you are missing out on one of the best running stores in Athens. Mark, one of the owners of the place, is a really great guy and is more than knowledgeable about Athens, heck Georgia running. When I told him I was doing the Albany 1/2 he had some tips and strategies I should employ on the run. They have a full service shoe department where they get you to try on the shoes and then put you on a treadmill to make sure they are the right ones for you. They also carry a full line of mens and womens clothes and other things the runner will need. My partner Mike went there and got his shoes and he now swears by them and says they make him faster. So if you need some shoes or just want to talk running then go by and see Mark and David.
