The Fit Process
Shoe Fit Process
At Philadelphia Runner, our objective is to meet your unique needs. Whether you're walking around your neighborhood or training for your first half-marathon, we customize each fitting through listening, using treadmill and video recording to conduct gait analysis, and trying on a few shoe options to help you select a comfortable shoe to meet your needs.
SPORTS BRA FITTINGS
No matter what your activity level is, we carry a wide range of sports bras - from Brooks, Nike, Under Armour, and more - to support you during every workout. Stop by any of our stores for a bra fitting and we'll help you find the perfect fit for yoga, running or CrossFit.
Finding a pair of compression socks, sleeves or even a knee brace that doesn't slide can be an intimidating process. By listening to your individual needs and using calf and foot measurements, we'll help you find the compression products that support you best.

For some, the journey with a brain tumor may be a month; some a year, some 5 years, and some for over a decade. My journey started in the fall of 2012 which was the beginning of my senior year of high school. I remember feeling sicker than I had ever felt in my entire life, and it lasted for weeks. Those weeks led to months, and months eventually led to years. I would vomit just about every day until the discovery of a brain tumor saved my life. That’s right, I went through most of my entire journey with a brain tumor that myself, my family, and medical professionals didn’t even know was there. This was until the day I first noticed I was seeing double. At first it was gradual, like when I looked out to my right while on the golf course or in my college classes, but it became constant just hours later. Things were heading downhill fast.
Believe it or not, the Broad Street Run is less than a week away. All the training is about to be put to the test, and now it's time for the final pieces of preparation: laying out the kit, picking up the race packets, making your race day plan!
Whether you run an average of 15 miles a week or 150, runners know that a very important part of running is cross training. In order for your overall running to improve and for your body to continue to progress you need to include other formats of exercise. Several forms of exercise which are great cross trainers are swimming, biking, group ex and spinning just to name a few. These forms of cardio exercise are all great, however, strength training is also a very important component of running. Strength training is a great way for your muscles to continue to develop which only helps you become a stronger runner.

First things first: a huge virtual fist bump to all the runners who survived this year's Boston Marathon, which looked absolutely miserable. As bad as it was for the runners, though, it made for great viewing from the comfort of my couch. What a surprising, inspiring group the top finishers were!
