Dink Taylor - Owner
I am an avid runner, triathlete and outdoor enthusiast. I grew up in Gadsden, AL and with encouragement from my Dad I started running in 1978. It did not take me long to get rolling and I ran my first marathon (2:56:35) in 1981 at the age of 16. A few years later, I ran my first 100 miler at age 21. I have always been serious about running and it's part of my everyday life. History shows my best races were at the 50k/50 mile distances, but I enjoy racing all distances. I did not get serious about triathlons until I was 47 and did my first Ironman in my first Tri season. I enjoy spending half of the year Tri training and I like the overall fitness it provides. I am a RRCA certified coach and really enjoy coaching and helping people reach their goals. I believe in Fleet Feet and what we have accomplished in making the community a better place to live.

Kathy Youngren - Training Director
I ran my very first race, the Marine Corp Marathon, in 1995. After running my third race ever, Strolling Jim 41.2 miler in Tennessee in 1996, I have been running races whenever possible; from 1 mile to 100 miles but I prefer ultramarathons. In July of 2009, by running for 33 hours and 39 minutes, I was 5th female overall at the Badwater Ultramarathon - 135 miles through Death Valley. In 2010 I got to run my dream race, the Spartathlon, a 153 mile race from Athens to Sparta, Greece by running 33 hours and 36 minutes. I have a law degree, a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice, and a Master's Degree in Education. My husband, Rob, and I have the two most wonderful dogs, Sparta and Tracks. I've been with Fleet Feet for over 3 years and love every minute of it!
Dianna Cioppi - Triathlon Training Director
I enjoyed watching the Ironman Championships in Kona when I was young. I would think these athletes were on a level that I would never achieve. I joined Fleet Feet's marathon training group in 2010. This gave me the confidence I needed to start triathlons. In the last 10 years, I have completed five full Ironman races, seven half Ironman races, and many Olympic and sprint distances. I am a ITCA certified traithlon coach, certified Sports Nutrition Specialist, and certified lifeguard. With a family and three boys ages, eleven, thirteen, and fifteen; having time to fit in training can be challenging. It's my enthusiasm and determination that makes everything work.
