Bio: If you run in Madison, chances are you've seen or met Allison Wood. From expos to clinics, Allison has been the face of Fleet Feet across the greater Jackson area. Plus, having run several half-marathons and a marathon to boot, she has more than enough experience to back up what she's talking about. Since Allison is so good at meeting people, you’ll see her promoting Fleet Feet at all the local racing events and health fairs. Just look for the Fleet Feet banners or tent; 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. She loves to be out in the crowd, hosting for Fleet Feet.
Favorite Race: St. Jude Marathon. (Memphis)
Running Advice: “Find a group of people to run with. They will help keep you motivated as well as make the whole run a lot more fun!”
The Fleet Feet Difference: “We enjoy getting to know our customers, not just pulling shoes from a rack or sizing. At Fleet Feet, we truly care about your goal and how to best meet it.”
Running Motivation: “Running is my therapy: it is a great stress reliever and a positive impact on your day. Nothing feels better than getting a good run in.”
Favorite Running Accessory: “Garmin 610. By far the easiest way to keep track of your miles, and it has a vibrate mode so you can listen to music and still know your mile intervals!”
Life Outside of Fleet Feet: “I enjoy visiting my two grown boys (when they will let me!) and hanging out with and entertaining friends at home.”
