Meet the Roat Family
During Andy's first day at Drake University, he saw another student wearing a Drake Relays Marathon shirt, and thought, "Wow, it would be cool to do that!" He has been smitten with running ever since. Prior to Fleet Feet Des Moines, Andy had a career in broadcast advertising. Running has been a huge part of Andy's life, and he wants to encourage others to enjoy a life of running and activity as much as he does.
