For real!  Hardcore competitors, newbies, fun runners, 5K to ultra: no matter how far or fast, Run For Your Life can put you in the right shoes, gear and clothing for your pursuits. Sure, size matters.  But that's just one of the factors that determine the best running shoe for your needs.  We'll walk (or run!) you through the whole process at any of our three Charlotte, NC Run For Your Life stores!
