Allison will be near by handing out cups of water or frozen goodies. If you’ve enjoyed any of Fleet Feet’s running social events like the Kid’s Run, Poker Run or Pub Run, that’s Allison’s doings.

A life-long soccer and ultimate player, David knows the importance of having shoes that match your needs and the shape of your feet. David loves helping people, and he thoroughly enjoys solving any and all kinds of people’s feet problems.

Chuck’s motto? "Good weather, bad weather…anytime is good for running."
Chuck began running at an early age, back when speed work was the only work, when dogs tried to make you chew toys on the road, and when a water stop was usually frozen due to the freezing-cold weather. By day he’s a children’s book illustrator and author, but by night you can spot him training for his next race.
