My name is Charisma and I am currently a 15 year old Sophomore in high school. My number one goal in life is to obtain a master’s degree in software engineering. Some of my personal interests consist of science, technology, video games, sports, cooking and playing the piano.
Growing up I loved playing soccer and running. But when I started middle school I had to pick between soccer and track. I decided to give track a try first and from that moment on I knew I made the right choice. Now without a doubt my favorite sport is track & field. My favorite sport is track because it differs from other sports – what you put in is what you get out. It’s as simple as that.
One of the main questions I get as a runner is “Why do you enjoy running, isn’t it painful?”. Yes it can be painful at times but all the pain is worth it when you achieve success in something you truly love to do. This is why I wanted my first article to be about buying all the best running gear at the best prices.
Why the Best Track Gear?
Buying the best gear for track and field can feel like paying a car note every month.
Depending on the weather, a single outfit (including shoes) can cost up to $250. This might seem crazy but not wearing the proper gear can result in injuries. Although it might seem impossible to afford, there are multiple places you can go to get your gear at a great price.
By the time you finish reading this post, you’ll have many solid options for the best places to get your track gear at the best prices.
Road Runner Sports
One of the best places to get your Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Asics, Saucony and other name brand shoes is Road Runner Sports. My all time favorite brands would have to be Under Armour and PUMA. Before buying a certain pair of shoes I always check on different websites to see which one offers the better deal.
About a solid 80% of the time Road Runner Sports has the best deals on shoes. Road Runner Sports always have amazing shoes at a great price with tons of discounts. They also have comfortable shoes for walking or just an everyday pair of shoes.
Running jackets, shorts and compression leggings can also very expensive. A second hand clothing website called Poshmark sells gently used track gear, usually 75% off retail price. Poshmark also allows you to buy and sell clothes and shoes. Often it is very easy to find brand new clothing items at good prices. Poshmark users are also allowed to trade items with other online users if they both agree.
Overall, Poshmark is an amazing website to get you the things you need. Recently I ordered a pair of brand new of PUMA running tights for $35 when the original price was $65. This is one of the main reasons why I enjoy using Poshmark to buy inexpensive clothing items.
Dick’s Sporting Goods
Flash sales are slowly becoming more and more popular. Flash sales are when a certain product or clothing item goes on sale for a limited amount of time. If you sign up your email with Dick’s Sporting Goods they always have flash sales on great items such as shoes, jackets, shirts, shorts and sweats. All their items are sold online with free shipping available.
For example, I purchased a winter coat for $99 during a flash sale and saved $60 on my purchase with the original price being $160. This is why my favorite store to shop at for all my track gear is most definitely Dick’s Sporting Goods. This is one of the best ways to get all your gear at affordable prices.
Buying all your workout clothes, shoes, and other track gear at an affordable price has never been easier. Places like Road Runner Sports, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Poshmark are some of the best places to get you the goods you need. Also, flash sales are something you should keep in mind when looking for the best price.
Shopping for track gear made easy and affordable.
Success is a journey,
