The new True Runner store in Brentwood Plaza recently hosted an after-hours Ladies' Night and Massage St. Louis was there! It was a great event, with about 80 women of all ages in attendance. The atmosphere was friendly and festive, with tasty and healthy drinks and snacks available, attendance prizes, goodie bags for participants, and discounts on purchases made at the event. A representative from Moving Comfort gave a presentation on proper bra fitting and was available for private fittings. Massage St. Louis was there providing brief table massages and speaking with participants about self-help techniques and how massage can help them as runners. Participants loved the table massages and were often heard to exclaim, "Wow! That was great! I feel so much better!"
A drawing for a 30 minute massage was held at the end of the evening and Alex Roth was the lucky winner. Congratulations, Alex!
Of course, all the wonderful women in attendance were obviously winners! It was a great, friendly, enthusiastic group. Gotta love those runners!
By the way, our running friends may be interested in a couple of articles on our blog. One is an interview with Dr. Timothy Noakes, runner and sports medicine doctor, on the role of the brain in fatigue. It's fascinating! Another is one runner's story about how he used massage to improve his performance and reach his goal of qualifying for the Olympic trials!
The True Runner store in Brentwood Plaza opened a few months ago and has gotten off to a great start. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The store has a large selection of everything a runner could possibly need. Shoes, clothing, and other equipment would be helpful for anyone who spends time outdoors. If you are in the neighborhood of Brentwood Plaza, I recommend you stop by! It's only a short distance down the road from our office.
Special thanks to Ashley at the store for organizing the event and inviting us to participate. We had a wonderful time and hope to see our running friends again soon.
