Help a Brotha Out

My most super-favorite running store of all time, Zombie Runner, is "in the running" for a Top 50 Stores award from Competitor Magazine. It's reader-vote driven, so you can help!

Head to and vote for Zombie Runner (located at 429 S. California, Palo Alto, CA, 94306).

Thanks for your help! If you haven't been, you should. It's a trail running mecca.



  1. Scott, I would like to ask you a question via email but I am unable to find any contact info on your blog. Please contact me at

    Thank you.

  2. Glad it's your favorite. After my experience where they billed my CC immediately but did not ship for over a month, and even then didn't ship complete, they would get my vote for the worst customer service ever.

  3. voted like a stoat(d)!

    don't remember whether i found ZR via a plug here or a link from the inov8 site, but i LOVE them. my hard-to-find shoes are always in stock, email blasts have a personality AND discount codes and the range of product is ridiculous.

    sorry anonymous above had a bad experience. in the 8ish orders i've placed with ZR in the past year my expectations have been met or exceeded.

  4. Thanks for the votes!

    Sorry to hear about the bad shipping experience. In five years, I've never had a shipment in less than four days. But I would certainly go crazy if it took a month.


  5. Thanks Scott. Glad I saw this.
    By far, the best running shop. I've had nothing but excellent *friendly* service from them; even when I'm being a non-paying shop rat after closing. :)
    ...and Don makes a mean cup of joe.
