We are well versed in the Run Specialty category. We’ll start with the most important step,
listening. Then, with our foot scan analysis and our non-commissioned Run-Fit Specialists, we will
determine your arch type, pressure points, degree of pronation, and this, in turn, allows us to make
sure to put you in the right shoe for your specific needs.
We are all about “old school” customer service and will assist you from start to finish. Our
Fit-Specialists are trained in shoe technology as it applies to specific needs, as well as the
most important factor for shoe performance: proper fit!
So, head on down and choose from the BEST names in running and save on the brands you love from the people you trust. Since 1965.

Hi, my name is Lauren Blankenship and in 2014 I started a small Business called Run with LB with a simple goal and passion for “Giving Back the Distance.” I was very blessed to run in high school, college, and right out have a 4 year stint coaching collegiately. When I stepped away from coaching college I had two other part time jobs serving and working at a run specialty store. I did go on to coach hs xc, track, and jv soccer which I have competed in myself through hs.It definitely took sacrifice in those years, but I knew I had a passion for the industry and I was inspired by the people I was able to help in my community. Not everyone had the background I did and many individuals in different stages of their lives were finding joy in running, walking, and racing on the roads. While working in run specialty I realized I could really give back by sharing this special gift I had been given and it was so rewarding to see 6 of my athletes qualify for the 2015 Boston Marathon, amidst other personal records.

In 2015, I not only ran my first Boston, but accepted a rep job selling brands you might know Balega and Trigger Point Therapy around the southeast. When the pandemic hit I made my way back to the store side and ended up landing in a marketing director role for Fleet Feet Decatur & Peachtree City. In September of 2022, I decided to take the leap to pursue my personal business which has been a huge blessing and I’m pleased to highlight I am pursuing it full time now. I have an a la carte menu offering private coaching for beginner to elite distance runners who are looking to complete their first 5k up to Ultra distance. I do not believe in giving a program to someone I do not know so the first month is very hands-on. I live in Smyrna, Ga, but I am set up to coach individuals from anywhere. While working at Fleet Feet Peachtree City I loved getting to know the run community and am grateful for the relationship I built with Caroline at Peachtree City Moms!
