When I went to Toowoomba parkrun I popped by TriRunning Toowoomba in Toowoomba.
A couple of my amazing followers gave me a heads up about this place, and I'm bloody glad they did 👍

TriRunning is located on Campbell street - right up the street from The Spotted Cow Pub 🐄
All important places are located near a pub 🍺

It was a wet & rainy day , luckily there are car parks right at the front door.
We ducked inside and was greeted by Aaron, the stores owner.

Aaron is a fittie (yes I made that word up)
He is a runner, and his store is an absolute credit to him 👍
This bloke knows his shit.
I told him a bit about my running, we all know I'm not the greatest runner, but hell, I want to be comfortable & look fantastic while doing it 🏃🏽‍♀️

I love me a shoe 👟
What better place to get a new pair?
And what beautiful shoes he has!

Aaron's shop really hits the spot for me.
It really is a niche business which caters to runners of all shapes & sizes.

Now they don't sell your standard brands like Nike or Asics. 
Aaron has taken the time to choose specific brands and models which he is proud to sell.
He stocks brands such as Altra Running, Topo Athletic Australia, Hoka One One, On & OOFOS Australia
The store also has a range of apparel & visors.
But we all know I'm banned from buying any more visors (visor donations are welcome 😉)

Aaron told me all about the composition of the shoes, something about heel toe drop - again I'm not a professional so I have no idea what that means.
I tried on a few different pairs, he knew immediately which was going to be the best for me.

It was raining outside ☔️ where could I try these bad boys out?
Pop up a back in 5 minutes sign on the front door - out a back door we went to the most amazing indoor training facility I've ever seen.

A few laps around the place (in my Mum uniform) I was sold.

I ended up with a pair of Altra's.
I bought a men's pair just for the sizing.
Yes, they are Parramatta Eels colours but we aren't talking about that 😜
They have an extra wide toe box - my toes have never had so much room!
I think I'm an Altra girl from now on 😎

Aaron even sent me a message during the week to see how I was going with the shoes - how's that for service!

He sells not only running shoes but trail shoes too 
On a side note, I'm running at Yarrabilba Trail Fest this Sunday, if I like it, Aaron I'm heading back up the range for you to sort me out with another pair 👟

If you want amazing service, a great price & to meet a great bloke - head up to Toowoomba and see Aaron 🏃 tell him I sent you!

Best of all - he didn't get the shits with Will climbing behind the socks rack, he refused to come out 😫
