Oct. 16th - Ask the PT with Andrew Tavernia of Xcelerate Physical Therapy

Join us for our regularly scheduled Monday Night Group Run, beginning at 6:45PM, and stay after to pick the brain of our friendly neighborhood physical therapist. With the fall racing season being upon us, why not stop-by and see if Andrew can help you before an ache becomes and injury? Tell your friends, Family members, neighbors, and frenemies. 

Bio: Andrew Tavernia of Xcelerate Physical Therapy is a graduate of Northeastern University with over 19 years of professional experience and a veteran of several marathons and half marathons.  He believes that in order to function at your best you need to identify the movement impairments that are the cause of your aches and pains.  With this information a personalized program is developed to address your issues and work towards your goals.  Andrew is excited to work with The Running Place and answer questions you may have while you strive to improve your running experience. 

The Right Foot Forward Your Experience

At The Running Place, our goal is to ensure that you not only receive the right shoes, but also understand the reasons behind the choice. We provide free consultations, where we perform a gait analysis, inspect your worn out shoes for telling wear patterns, and talk with you about any injury history. All of this information helps us determine what shoe type is best for you.


Every journey begins with the first step. Before you take that first step, make sure you have the right shoes to get you where you are going. There are high arches, flat arches, and all heights in between. Some feet are rigid and some are flexible. There are different categories of shoes - different foot types are more comfortable and perform better in the right category. We will help you determine your foot type and which category best suits your needs.

Plenty of parking in front of the store
