Welcome Eric Johnson the owner of Fleet Feet Springfield, a specialty running store in Springfield Missouri. We learn a little about Eric, and a ton about the day to day operation of a running store. Why Eric purchased the business. How the staff is trained to put the customer in the correct shoe. How products are selected to go on the shelves, the importance of a well fitting bra and much, much more.
Stephen talks about the Hawk Marathon on the Race Recap. Things didn’t go well with the weather, but runners and race directors overcame obstacles to make it happen. Stephen even overcame his not-so advisable pre-race meal. You’ll have to listen to get the details about that and his Heartland Running score for the race.
In the Gear Review Andy discusses the Inov-8 RoadClaw 275, Stephen compares the Inov-8 Trail Talon 275 to the Niki Tera Kiger 3, he is foaming at the mouth to get a hold of the Inov-8 Rocklite 305 when they are released. and Eric reviews the Hoka Challenger ATR 2 that he bought right before the Pikes Peak Marathon.
