Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. We have a FREE topic this week so feel free to write about any running related topic! Today I’m sharing my favorite places to score deals on running gear!
Online Resale Websites
I know that that people either love or hate the resale websites but I’ve always been able to find some great deals on there. I only purchase items that are new with tags. On eBay I’ve purchased Brooks sports bras and a few workout shirts. I found a really awesome pair of brand new Nike running rights on Poshmark last year (at a super discount too). I’ve noticed that I find the best sales during the off season. For example, next month would be a good time to search listing for Winter running gear since we’re going into Spring. I’ve also heard good things about the ThredUp website but haven’t shopped on there yet.
I really like the Running Warehouse website because they have everything from nutrition items to running sneakers. When I was looking for a pair of Brooks sneakers, they were sold out in my size on the Brooks website but I was able to go to Running Warehouse and not only find the sneakers in my size, but for a little bit cheaper as well! They also offer free 2-day shipping and they have a great return policy. I’ve had to contact their customer service department twice and both times they were super friendly and accommodating.
Of course Amazon had to be included in this list! I’ve actually found that Amazon is a great resource if you’re looking for “out of date” items. What I mean by that is any items from last season or the previous version of sneakers. I also love to shop Amazon to purchase any items for themed races because I can always find affordable items and because I’m an Amazon Prime member, I can get the items in 1-2 days.
