Eryn Clark

Eryn Clark

Training Programs Manager

Hometown: Durham, NC

Favorite place to run: The Al Buehler loop has been my go-to since high school.

Favorite piece of gear: Green Nike running socks that I have raced in every race since high school. I guess you could say they are my “lucky” socks.

Favorite post-workout treat: Anything sweet: ice cream, donuts, cookie etc. In Wilmington it was Pelican’s Snoballs.

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would…probably be personal training, or doing a better job at studying for the GRE.

Hidden talents: I like to surf. I wasn’t stellar at it but it was logged as cross training quite a bit while at school.

Lindsey Funch

Lindsey Funch

Store Operations Manager

Hometown: Rutland, VT

Favorite place to run: Might sound cliche, but Pre’s Trail in Eugene, OR. It was right near out house when we lived in Oregon, so I logged countless miles there and often saw the professional runners out on the path.

Favorite piece of gear: My Garmin. I won’t leave home without it.

Favorite post-workout treat: I absolutely love chocolate milk and pumpkin chocolate-chip cookies.

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would…be the giraffe handler at the zoo.

Hidden talents: Not sure if I’m talented at it, but I love baking.

Chance Newton

Chance Newton

Running Relationship Expert

Hometown: Chapel Hill, NC

Favorite place to run: Downtown Raleigh and around the greenways by NC State/Meredith.

Favorite piece of gear: 2-3 inch split shorts. They’re pretty much what I wear every day.

Favorite post-workout treat: I don’t get it often (which I guess makes it a treat), but I love Which Wich subs. Still haven’t had the “Super” size yet; saving it for like a 30+ mile day.

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would…probably play video games and watch anime/read manga, but I do that anyway. Don’t think that pays too much, though.

Hidden talents: Baking!

Ellen Moss

Favorite place to run: It’s a tie between the Arboretum/Shut-In Ridge Trail in Asheville and the Boston Marathon race course.

Favorite piece of gear: Any headband or pair of socks that has glitter and/or pictures of animals or baked goods on it.

Favorite post-workout treat: Mapleview Farms chocolate milk

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would…be a full-time, life-long summer camp counselor. I was devastated to learn that this wasn’t an actual job I could do in the real world after dedicating every summer of my college career to it.

Hidden talents: I know ALL the lyrics to EVERY early-to-mid 90’s country music song and can name the artist who sings each of them. (Brett Harris and I actually have this hidden talent in common, but he doesn’t like to talk about it.)

Favorite post-workout treat: Plate of barbecue and a Beer

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would… be hanging out in my backyard with my smoker making some tasty food.

Hidden talents: I created a board game specifically for Leap Day. It was well received but we can only play it every four years, so it’s too early to tell if it counts as a talent!

Favorite place to run: Locally, any trail along the Eno River. Out of town, hard to beat the old growth forest in the Pacific Northwest.

Favorite piece of gear: Oiselle Pocket Jogger Short. Simply the best. 

Favorite post-workout treat: Dark roast from Joe Van Gogh’s and just about anything at Monuts.

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would…lead epic eco-trail running tours overseas!

Favorite place to run: Up (but like…mostly down) mountains! Around here I like the Triangle Land Conservancy preserves like Horton Grove

Favorite post-workout treat: A big old breakfast burrito 

If I weren’t so dang good at my job, I would… Become a British citizen, enter the Great British Bake Off, get accepted on the show… and more than likely collapse in a puddle of stress tears and icing sugar on international television 

Hidden talent(s): I can wiggle my ears both simultaneously and one at a time. Will demonstrate if asked nicely!
