09/03/2011 Running 101


The Wake Up Call was LIVE at the MN State Fair again this morning and this time our guest was John Long, owner of Marathon Sports in Minneapolis. Rob and Gizelle chatted with John about how someone can get started in running as part of their exercise routine and what to look for in running footwear.

At The Fair

Marathon Sports also sponsored a special give-away for us today, and Karen from Saint Paul won the drawing for a free pair of shoes from Marathon Sports (up to $120 value) we did after the show. Congrats to Karen. And anyone that stops by Marathon Sports this coming week (through Saturday, September 10, 2011) and lets them know you heard them on The Wake Up Call will get a special deal as well.

We’re already looking forward to returning to the Fair again next year, but of course don’t forget to join us when we’re back in the studio next week.
