Today we welcome a new sponsor, West Seattle Runner. Owners Tim and Lori McConnell (that’s Tim, above) invite you to stop by this weekend — they’re celebrating their first anniversary today, Saturday, and Sunday. There’s 20 percent off some items in the store and they’ll have a couch-to-marathon information session at 6 pm tonight, hosted by the American Heart Association.
Tim says West Seattle Runner is the only store in West Seattle that caters to runners. He says that he, Lori, and their staff, are West Seattle residents and runners who will take the time to find you the right shoe with the right fit. He adds that West Seattle Runner has shoes and advice for all runners, whether you’re an absolute beginner or an experienced marathon runner. Also, West Seattle Runner has a large selection of women’s apparel. They stock Amphipod and FuelBelt hydration packs, along with supplements from GU and Clif.
In addition to finding shoes and apparel, you can also find out about runners’ groups in West Seattle. Since the first of the year, Tim has offered his own couch-to-marathon class that will help people get ready for the Seattle Marathon this fall. West Seattle Runner is also a sponsor for the West Seattle 5K and Alki Beach Run benefit events. West Seattle Runner is upstairs at 3727 California SW (corner of Charlestown), and is on Facebook here; by phone – 206-938-0545.
