Get to know each of our amazing team members!
Eric is the store owner.
He began as manager for The Starting Block/Ultramax Sports in 2008 before purchasing the business in 2016 and converting it to Fleet Feet Springfield.
Eric is married to Lissa and father to Gabriel, Grayson, and Lydia, possibly the funniest kids on the planet. Click here to see why.
Eric likes running, obstacle/mud runs, triathlons and the occasional beer mile, but his true love is teaching and serving people. He also loves pretty much every dessert ever made and has a questionable sense of humor.
Retail Experience Manager
Meagan loves traveling, making goofy store promo videos, and people. She works for us full time and serves as our Retail Experience Manager. Meagan might be the most genuinely nice person we've ever come across and it's truly an honor to work with her.
Director of Operations
Anthony, our Director of Operations, began his career with us shortly after we opened in 2008.
Not shy of hard work, Anthony has put in 17 hour inventory sessions, overnight tent sale merchandise transfers, and was a voice of reason when Eric destroyed a Sonic sign with a moving truck and asked, in a panic, "should I drive away?"
Anthony is married to Kristy and father to Jack. He loves everything gaming. Anthony also is a former MSU Bear with a 5K PR under 15:30 and 10K PR under 32 minutes, although you would never know it with his modest personality.
Training Groups Manager
Courtney is our amazing Training Groups Manager at Fleet Feet, but her full-time job is being a Board Certified Behavior Analyst! Her favorite part of her job at Fleet Feet is being a part of the journey to help people reach their goals and seeing them realize all the things they had no idea they were capable of.
If Courtney isn't working (Probably working though) you might catch her doing yoga or golfing. Some day she has plans to see the Northern Lights and Hike the Appalachian Trail!
Silas is our Events Coordinator. His favorite part of his job is fitting new runners and helping them prepare for races. I enjoy telling them the history/legend of the first marathon and I like being able to encourage them. It's also encouraging to me to see new people come into the discipline of distance running, because it's something I believe in and I truly believe it helps to make us better people.
Aside from running, Silas spends his free time reading, writing fiction, attempting to cook, and a lot of kayaking and camping.

He serves our community as a full time firefighter in addition to working at Fleet Feet Springfield. Kelly is one of our customers' favorite team members for his consistently friendly attitude.
He's our resident handyman and we can't imagine the store without him. When he isn't dabbling in triathlons or the occasional half marathon or trail run, Kelly loves to take long motorcycle rides with his wife.
