Issue #100


 March 27, 2012

For the 100th Time...

Celebrating 100

Time flies when you are having fun! It's hard to believe that this is the 100th newsletter I've written since taking over ownership of the store in June of 2008. Some days I feel like I haven't accomplished much in the past four years, but when I look back I'm amazed by how much the store - and I - have grown:


Over 1,500 people have participated in our training programs - many beginning with our 5k program, then advancing to complete their first 10k, half marathon, marathon and triathlon. It's inspiring to be able to watch first-hand as people's fitness and confidence grow and heartwarming as they join our rank of coaches and help pay it forward.


Our Fun Runs and Track Workouts regularly see 50+ people - with several hearty souls meeting for a rouge run when we cancel for bad weather. There have even been a few couples who met during our runs, including Schuyler who will be marrying his "sole"mate Tessa this October. Congrats to you both!


Our staff has grown from six to 28 diverse, yet equally passionate Shoe Whisperers who do their best every day to make your day and find the perfect shoe because we all know that the right shoe can be magic.


Our store has grown from 1,500 square feet to 3,600 making it easier to shop and more comfortable to visit. You can even try your shoes out inside now! The additional space has allowed us to almost triple our inventory and broaden our range of products - especially in our new Triathlon Corner. My favorite part of the expanded store is the addition of six 7' benches so we don't have to fit customers in the dressing rooms or outside anymore!


I have met so many incredible people who give of themselves be it their time, talent or treasure (usually all three), inspire others and find the strength to conquer even the most daunting obstacles. People like Cliff Paquette whose mission is to support, honor and remember the servicemen and women who were killed in action; Scott Wojnarowicz whose running program at Capitol Prep Magnet School keeps kids out of gangs and encourages them to go to college; and Sole Sister founders Lisa Greenwood and Debbie Dorman whose ever-growing club is like a family that supports, embraces and empowers women to do amazing things.


I will always be grateful to each of you who choose to shop local, especially supporting Fleet Feet. Research shows that $68 out of every $100 spent at locally-owned small businesses is filtered back into the community (versus $48 from big business and $0 from online stores). It is my goal to use our resources to give back and support our running community so together we can continue to grow and make a happier, healthier world.


Be Fit!


Schuyler's Shoe Review: adiZero Boston 3


The 116th Boston Marathon is only 19 days away. With this prestigious event around the corner, runners throughout New England are starting their taper. Others are getting ready to support their friends or family at the race, cheer on the elites, or start their training in the hopes of qualifying next year and beyond. 


For all of those runners who fall asleep dreaming of speed, Adidas has a new lightweight trainer designed for the perfect balance of protection and speed. The adiZero Boston 3 features a low-profile, sub-10 oz. weight, and minimal upper construction to make you feel fast on race-day, tempo runs, or any day of the week. A firmer midsole foam than your typical training shoe giver greater road feel without sacrificing cushioning. 


Heel strikers who feel left out of the minimalist game don't have any more reason to fret. Adidas' patented Formotion unit in the heel ensures the proper shock absorption at any angle and on any surface. Formotion is gender-specific, so it takes into account the different angles of women's and men's footstrike. 


Runners looking for an even faster shoe can up their speed with the new adiZero Adios 2. This is the shoe that Patrick Makau was wearing when he ran a world record 2:03:38 in Berlin. Haille Gebrselassie wore the original version of the Adios for almost all of his world record runs. With cushion built for the half-marathon and marathon and a lightweight, low-profile, responsive feel for speed, this shoe is a favorite of long-distance racers worldwide. A major change from the previous version is a new Continental rubber outsole that provides 23% greater traction on wet roads.  

Amy's Gear Corner

So when you want a shirt that feels like your cozy everyday tee-shirt, looks stylish and performs like your best tech tee, this shirt does it all! The feminine minimal neckline, pretty flower print and soft blue color are perfect for spring!

Brooks Sherpa 2-in-1 Short 4.5" for Men

Brooks took their most popular short and gave it more support with a 2-in-1 moisture-transfer liner. This internal system helps prevent troublesome chafing. Marathoners love the two back holster pockets for gels or other small essentials. This short is great for short and long runs, walks and hikes! 360 degrees of 3M Scotchlite reflectivity ensures you will be comfortable and be seen!


Brooks Epiphany Skort for Women

Have we got the skort for you! Its contrast rollover waistband and flattering design lines combine to give you style and functionality. The internal compression short stays put. No more tugging down or readjusting! The outer stretch material moves with you, so you can enjoy your activity. It even has a rear zip pocket for small essentials!


Brooks Glycerin Printed Bra Top II

Brooks does it again! They designed an intelligently designed bra with a sweet, modern print. The seamless cup construction adds shape and modesty, while offering a great fit for A cups and more comfortable support for Bs and Cs. The double-strap racer back is flattering and supportive at the same time. Two color choices match our current Brooks spring-inspired collections.

Zoomerang Kids Program - Starts April 22

Two Locations: West Hartford & Glastonbury


zoomerangsIf your kids like to run, we've got a fun program just for them: Zoomerangs!  Now in our 8th season, this non-competitive "open track" program is designed for kids aged 4-13. It gives them the opportunity to experience running in a fun, friendly atmosphere where the motto is "Will run for worms" (gummy worms, that is!).


It's a great place for kids to run safely, correctly using good form, make friends and get stronger/build endurance so they can perform better in other sports (or rock the mile in gym class). Most of all, our goal is to empower kids to accomplish their goals and instill in them a lifelong love of running. It's also a great opportunity for mom and dad to spend quality time with your kids - and get in shape too!


The Spring 2012 edition of our popular program begins on Sunday afternoon, April 22. Kids can choose between two program locations: Saint Joseph College Track in West Hartford (4:00pm) or the Smith School Track in Glastonbury (3:30pm). Practices will last about 45 minutes.


Alexa & AyanoAfter a group warm-up (stretches, form drills and running games), kids will be encouraged to run at their own pace and run as many laps as they feel comfortable running. Our goal is to have kids run/walk 4 laps (1 mile) each practice - though, by the end of the season many kids are running 2-4 miles - and still smiling at the end!


The program will culminate with either the Celebrate West Hartford 5k & Kids Fun Run (Sunday, June 10) or the Firecracker 5k in Glastonbury (Sunday, July 1).


Program cost is $50 per child and includes a Zoomerang Team t-shirt, road race entry, gummy-worms and "lap rewards". Scholarships are available for needy kids.  Register online or in the store.


Questions or if you would like to help volunteer at the practices, email Steph.  

Tough Mudder Training - Starts April 24

Tough MudderYou've seen the photos. Watched the video. Heard the stories. And despite it all, you are still crazy enough to want to do it. Fortunately, we've teamed up with Glenn Marcella and The Playground to make sure you are ready to conquer the Tough Mudder on July 14-15!


The Tough Mudder is an event like none other. It consists of 10 miles of hills and mud on Mount Snow in VT (over 13,000ft of elevation change!) and 25 military-style obstacles designed by the British Special Forces. Think walls, barbed-wire, monkey bars, mud pits, tunnels, fire, ice water and electric shocks. It's a fearsome challenge and an epic adventure!


Tough Mudder TeamOur 12-week training program begins on Tuesday, April 24 and will consist of coached hill runs on Tuesday's at 6pm, "fun"ctional strength workouts at The Playground (you choose your workout days/times) as well as weekend trail runs and "discomfort training" field trips lead by Tough Mudder veterans (i.e. swimming in cold lakes, learning how to get over walls, speed crawl under barbed-wire and through pipes, etc). This program will give you the physical and mental toughness AND the camaraderie needed to finish this race.


Our goal is the Tough Mudder New England #2 event on July 14-15. The Training Program fee is $295 and includes your training plan, knowledgeable coaches, a three-month membership to The Playground for unlimited Tough Mudder-inspired strength workouts, and a cool team shirt. The fee does not include your Tough Mudder race registration.


Sign-up online or in the store.  Our program kick-off meeting will be on Wednesday, April 11 at 7pm.  Come and meet your coaches, fellow participants and past Tough Mudder graduates - plus, get your Playground Membership card and training plan.

Dunk Your Kicks! 

Dunk Your KicksFleet Feet Sports is proud to be a drop-off location for the Max Cure Foundation's Dunk Your Kicks program. For every pair of used sneakers donated, the Max Cure Foundation will donate $1 to Pediatric Cancer Research through a partnership with Green Sneakers, an environmentally friendly national company whose simple and effective programs for reusable "kicks" benefits local charities and impoverished countries.


Dunk Your Kicks and the Max Cure Foundation was started by David Plotkin whose son Max (then three years old) was diagnosed with B-cell Lymphoma. Fortunately, a two-year protocol of chemotherapy pushed the cancer into remission and now Max is a healthy 7 year old. Both father and son dedicate themselves to raising funds to advance cures for pediatric cancers, develop less toxic treatments for children with the disease and assist low-income families battling cancer in their children. They also seek to inspire children afflicted with cancer to face the disease with courage, hope and most important, bravery.


Max's goal is 500,000 pairs of sneakers. Working together, we can reach that goal!

Beans & Greens

By Aubrey Schulz 

Get Out & Play - & Soak-up Vitiman DOne of the newer trends is for farmers to combine unique blends of baby greens together to create a "saute mix" or "early bird braising mix". Various greens are assembled together, like kales, collards, dandelion greens, escarole and endive. These fresh young leaves don't possess the bitter taste that can be off-putting in more mature leaves.


Unlike the mesclun mix commonly found in a grocery store, this type of mixture is best after cooking and not ideally suited for salads. Using a slow gentle braising is preferred over the cook everything quickly method of sauteeing. The cook time for this method extends the cooking process by an additional ten minutes. I'm pretty sure that is a worthwhile wait time.


I made this recipe on Saturday night, the first night in our new house. With the skillet and a few kitchen tools unpacked, I created this simple dish with an early bird braising mix from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) from Urban Oaks in New Britain. The veggies were transported from the old apartment to the new home, along with the pantry staple- beans. If I can pull this meal together amidst the chaos of boxes and unpacking, I am confident that you can cook this during a typical weeknight.


Beans and Greens



  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large bunch of greens, chopped into ribbons, tough stems/ribs removed
  • Salt



  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and onion and saute until soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add beans and stir to mix.
  3. Add in greens and stir. Season with salt. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Cook until the greens are tender, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Aubrey Schulz is a certified nutrition and triathlon coach with Get Out N Play .  She works with clients to help them reach their nutritional and athletic goals, both in the kitchen and out on the road.  On June 8-10th, Aubrey will be directing a weekend triathlon training camp in Voluntown, CT.

They will also answer any questions you may have about their own training programs.

What to bring: An open mind and a great attitude

"Good Form" Running Clinic - FREE

Hosted by New Balance

April 3 @ 6-7pm

Good Form Running

Good Form Running was born out of the simple insight that most runners, from the occasional jogger to an elite athlete, were never taught how to run. It was first developed by Curt Munson, owner of Playmaker sports (a running specialty store in MI) who, after being chronically injured, realized that no one practices running.


Overstriding, heel striking, and bad posture are all things that cause a runner to exert more effort, and possibly cause injury due to increased strain. So, working together, Curt and Grant broke running form down into four simple, but highly effective points that can help transform anyone into a more efficient,healthy runner.


During this one hour clinic, you will learn those four key points and practice implementing them with fun drills. The clinic is open to everyone - no matter your experience level or pace. 


Please RSVP here as we expect a big crowd (last year almost 100 people attending our Good Form Running Clinic).  It's definitely one ofthe most valuable clinics we offer so mark your calendar today!
