Running Specialty--State of the Union

An interesting and mostly objective take on the running business. I am still convinced customers will follow the best service and experience. They want their retail/consumer experience to align with their training/recreational goals.

Whoever merges and provides a holistic experience best will survive the longest.

Could be RSG, could be Fleet Feet Sports, could be Mom-and-Pop, could even be Dick's or Shoe Carnival. I am convinced it will have a face to face interactive component for at least another quarter century.

Who wants it the most?

Oh yeah, it's about a lot more than shoes.
