BEST RUNNING SHOES: Feet First

The great personal service at Feet First reflects the fact that the folks there actually know running, and in many cases are runners themselves. So whether you’re running down Bayshore or hitting the Pinellas Trail, it’s good to know there’s a place on either side of the Bay where you can get a pair of running shoes that will last you — for at least a year. 3401 Bay to Bay Blvd., Tampa, 813-835-1339; 4949 Fourth St. N., St. Petersburg, 727-898-1130. feetfirstrunning.com.
