Interesting Company

We all come to running from different backgrounds and with different goals and aspirations.  That's what makes working in the running business so interesting.  Everyone you meet has a unique and usually fun story.  The group of runners that seems to have the most eclectic mix of stories, however, is first-time marathoners.  Just a few weeks ago, former Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce completed the Rock 'n' Roll St Louis Marathon in 6:06.  And just a few days ago former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson crossed the finish line in 5:41.  I thought it might be fun to compile a list of some celebrities that have wandered over to our side of the street to test themselves against the marathon.  Imagine a training group composed of this assortment of marathoners.

Who will you be running next to if this group signs up for your next marathon?  Who do you really want to beat?  Whose time really surprises you; or who were you surprised even did a marathon?  If you've tackled the half marathon distance but haven't yet tackled the marathon, consider becoming a celebrity, yourself.  Sign up for any FLEET FEET Training Center class or Training Program thru 11/7 and save 10% using promo code 576329496331.
