When you go out to eat, there’s always a safe order, food that you know you’re going to enjoy. But there’s also that dish you haven’t tried, the one that sounds like it could be great. All you need is a little extra incentive to try it. The same is true of running apparel. We all have clothes that we know will perform well on the run, but there’s that one piece that you’d like to try out if you had the chance. Well, we can’t really give you any additional reason to try the Chef’s Special, but we can offer an incentive to try out a new style of running apparel. From October 11th to the 18th we’re running a 35% off sale on select apparel items. We won’t pretend to know what you have in your wardrobe, but there are certainly some items that you haven’t tried yet, and there’s no time like a sale to give something new a whirl.
With that said, here’s five women’s and five men’s items from our sale. You might just find the next great addition to your training wardrobe.
Brooks Women’s Chaser 3” Short – Standard running shorts are great, but a luxurious pair with comfort focused features is something else. Sale Price $29.90
New Balance Women’s Perfect Printed Tank – Running doesn’t have to be strictly business, and adding a little fun to your training attire won’t hurt anyone. Sale Price $29.24
