"No Boundaries" begins!!!

We had a really exciting day last Saturday. It was the kickoff of our first training program, "No Boundaries". After lots of 'stressing out' about the details, the event went seamlessly and we had an absolute blast with our 60+ participants. One of my favorite things about owning a Fleet Feet Store store is getting people excited about running and walking! We had seven very experienced coaches and were inspired by the stories of our participants. From recently battling cancer to struggling to lose weight, to just not knowing where to begin with running, we heard it all. It was inspiring! For our first week, we ran and walked a full mile and everyone came back excited to do it again this weekend. All in all, just a fantastic day. We can't wait to do it again this weekend with our walkers and runners set to tackle 1.5 miles out there!
We feel lucky to have such a fun, outgoing, and excited group to work with! Our end goal is to finish the Heaven Can Wait 5K Walk/Run. What a great event to support and to train for!
