Thank you for changing my life!

Sometimes a customer’s story is too good to keep to yourself. Enjoy!

“I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for changing my life. I know, that sounds totally dramatic, but let me explain. I have always been somewhat athletic, but once I had kids, I always put them first and felt like I had to choose between exercising and being with them. In January, I decided enough is enough. I started rowing and running short distances on the treadmill.

I have never been a runner- I never understood why people would ever run 26 miles. Ever. My friend wakes up at 4:30 am to run, and I think she is crazy. Like I said, I am not a runner. When I attempted to run, a 5K here or there with my kids, my knees would hurt, my feet would feel like they were numb, my body would be sore, and I’d be miserable for 3.2 miles.

In March, my husband suggested I come to your store to be fitted for running shoes. I was completely skeptical but I love shoes so I couldn’t say no to a new pair of sneakers. I tried on about ten pairs; the woman helping me was incredibly patient! She just kept bringing more and more until we narrowed it down and I finally settled on one. The next time I was on the treadmill, my feet felt amazing! I began running for longer distances. I found an app that I have absolutely loved and at some point, it had me running as long as fifty minutes! If you had told me six months ago that I’d be running for that length of time, I would have laughed.

I just got back from a six-mile run. And guess what? My feet feel great. My knees don’t hurt, my hips feel good and here’s the crazy part: I actually really enjoy running!! All because YOU found the perfect pair of running shoes for me. I have shed pounds, am eating healthier, and feel better about myself overall. I might even consider a couple of races here and there:).

THANK YOU Big River Running! I am so thankful for your service and expertise!!!
