Running gear

According to there are about 8 to 16 million “frequent” runners in the US. It’s a huge market for clothes and other gear. The Running USA website has some interesting statistics about the demographics of runners and what they buy. That said, I wonder why it’s so hard to find a place that sells crew length running socks. I can’t be the only one that wants them. On the subject of running clothing, a member of the Emerging Runner advisory board told me today about an interesting website: It’s an auction style site run by, an outdoor clothing manufacturer. Every 20 minutes they put up an item that you can purchase at a substantial discount but only during the period the item is active. Looks addictive.
