  1. Conor helped fit me for shoes yesterday and he was amazing. I have never been fitted before and he made the process go smoothly and made sure all of my questions were answered. All of the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about this sport. I will definitely be shopping for my running shoes at The Colorado Running Company and giving them a good recommendation.
