Robin - Retail Experience Manager
I’ve been an athlete for most of my life. I was never too much of a distance runner, but I always loved to sign up for a 5K just for a challenge. About four years ago, after my youngest child was born, I decided to get back into that athletic lifestyle. I’ve run over 50 races and set PRs I’m proud of and have even started pacing friends to help achieve their goals. I work for Fleet Feet and get to talk about running and experiences all day. Running has brought an amazing community of friends to me and HOKA ONE ONE has been my shoe of choice this awesome endeavor.

Moved to Murfreesboro from Toronto in 2009, and after my second daughter was born later that year, I took up running & started attending classes at the gym to get back in shape. I ran my first half marathon, in Nashville, with my Mom in April, 2012. After that I participated in several Fleet Feet training programs, eventually mentoring for the Half Marathon Program. I have run a handful of half marathons, 3 Ragnar Relays (TN), and several 15k, 10k and 5Ks since that first race. I have met SO many amazing people through running!
