The box arrived today & I was very excited. The box was clearly marked. The box was also perfectly sized for carrying. And it made it all in one piece, which is often a challenge when shipping to APO.
|Exclaiming to the world: I am a Runner!|
Very well wrapped! And the bubbles in the bubble wrap were huge... made for good popping action after the fact. All of the nutrition was packed into the bubble wrap, so it arrived intact & in perfect condition. A side view of the packaging:
To call Road Runner Sports a comprehensive running store would be grossly understating the amount of merchandise they carry. Since I'm sizing down all my clothing, I decided to give the Women's RSS Velocity Capri Tights. These are my first pair of tights & I think they run a bit small; I ordered a size up based on the reviews. This is what they look like:
All that aside, Road Runner Sports appears to have many great options in running shoes, apparel, hydration, watches, recovery, fitness gear... well, you see where I'm going with this. A bit of everything. Road Runner Sports even offers a "Daily Treat," very similar to Amazon's Deal of the Day, on whatever products they've decided to put on special-sale.
And finally, the actual nutrition I purchased. Taking the advice of the numerous blogs/magazines, I purchased a variety of brands & styles.
|Nutrition: I haz it!|
Still on the way from Road Runner Sports in a separate package: more Honey Stinger stuff & some visors. I <3 visors.
My biggest challenge now is to figure out how to use nutrition. I don't want to overdo it. I'm sure I'll figure it out.
As for Road Runner Sports: all I can say is "Holy Running, Batman!" They've got absolutely everything & will ship it all to APO. As a military family member, that alone gives me a happy. There's also a "VIP Family" program; for $1.99 (the first year, $25 the following year), you get free shipping for the year, special VIP pricing (listed on the products, next to the regular price for comparison), & 90 day money back on any product you try & don't like. The only issue I have with that is the program is on "auto renewal," so you have to manually cancel it should you want to withdraw. But honestly, if you're a running & ordering nutrition online, why would you? Take it from me: shipping costs are a bitch. If you know you're going to order multiple times, even a $25 membership fee will pay off in the end.
So far, I'm very happy to shop Road Runner Sports. They offer a wide range of everything for runners. They ship everything APO. Free shipping for a year at a membership fee of $1.99 (for the first year). I will definitely be shopping again!
