Paul and Cathy Rogers
In 2016, Paul and Cathy's dream to settle in Myrtle Beach became a reality when they were given the opportunity to own Fleet Feet Myrtle Beach. Over the years, they have moved 17 times, living in Germany with the Army, having a brief stint in Canada, and circling the United States twice. However, nothing quite compared to their time in Myrtle Beach. With the help of their two sons, Shawn and Kyle, Paul and Cathy are now carrying out their love for fitness while supporting a community they hold dear.
Paul graduated from the United State Military Academy and earned an MBA in Finance from San Jose State University. He spent 8 years in the Military, followed by over 20 years in the corporate world. Although his work background is in the industrial and medical industries, Paul always had a passion for running and fitness. Paul ran his first 5K in 1980, and instantly fell in love with the sport. In 1983, he eventually ran his first marathon, Berlin, and has since finished 16 more along with numerous other races. He is most passionate about helping other people start down the healthy lifestyle path and achieve their goals.
Cathy has B.S. and M.A. degrees in Education from Oklahoma State University. She spent 30 years in the classroom teaching mostly middle school, with a brief experience working in the Department of Defense American School in Vilseck, West Germany, where she also coached the track team. From skiing, to running, to tae kwan do, and yoga, Cathy has always been motivated to stay fit. She is happy to be in Myrtle Beach sharing her enthusiasm for fitness!
