Anyone know of a decent running shop in Wales? I need to buy a new pair of running shoes and get my gait recovering from shin splints. Cardiff is closest or Swansea.

i've used run and become, they were fantastic, the lady assisstant looked at the wear on my old trainers, watched me run, asked what sort of running i do mostly, asked my budget (I'm a poor student, so this really helped me out) then she watched me run in about 4 or 5 pairs of trainers. I eventually bought the one she said looked best for me (it felt good, but i haven't been running long so didn't know much) and it was one from the sale, so only cost about 45quid. I was having sore knees before that (hence buying new pair of trainers) and haven't had a problem since, even though i'm quite limited to road and pavement runnning at the moment. If you know cardiff they're down opposite the bus and train station.

Or take trick down the M4 to EasyRunner in Bristol - they are FAB in my experience, very VERY helpful and knowledgable.
