With all the annoyingness of the Task Force trying to kill races where they can I thought some positivity was in order. There was a recent survey that Rogue did on this and I thought, who are all the businesses that we go to that are runner friendly … I don’t mean running stores or training groups but businesses who’s business really isn’t running.
I started a discussion on keepaustinrunning.org on this: http://www.keepaustinrunning.org/forum/topic/show?id=2213086%3ATopic%3A2101
I listed the Starbucks that a few people mentioned on our long runs as well as Russel’s bakery on Hancock. I would probably add Juan in a Million too, they put up with all the smelly runners, have great service and the food comes out quickly and consistently.
I’m wondering what the other places are you’ve come to appreciate for their running friendliness. Share yours on this forum link: http://www.keepaustinrunning.org/forum/topic/show?id=2213086%3ATopic%3A2101
