What to do with those old running shoes? has the answer!

Hey Guys, I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend and is looking forward to a summer full of running fun!
 I'd like to take a moment and tell you about my friends over at  Kindrunner is the only place on the web where runners can trade in their old running shoes for new shoes.  Runners receive ‘Kindness Cash Rewards’ for every shoe they send in. In turn, they give those old shoes to their shoe donation partners, including Soles 4 Souls and the More Foundation, to benefit people in need. Now that's pretty cool! But it is more than that!

  Kindrunner also plans to change the way running shoes and products are purchased online.  Their goal is to bring the knowledge of a local-running shop to your fingertips online, with a group of runners who have a combined 40+ years working in the industry.  They also realize that there are millions of running shoes that go into the trash yearly, and think we can do something better with those shoes.  There are tens of millions of people around the world who would get years of use our of the shoes that most of us consider to be trashed... they also think that people should be rewarded for helping others, hence the kindness cash idea!

Check out their video for more info!
