  • "“So I can eat gravy” was my stock response two and a half years ago when first asked what motivated me to start running. I’d done the rounds with diets and didn’t believe I would ever find one that I would stick to for more then a few days at a time. I decided that exercise was the answer and I thought that if I ran I wouldn’t have to worry so much about what I ate. I do love to eat. Months passed and the running became easier, I even trained for and finished my first marathon, but still my weight never did change substantially and to add salt to that wound I found that my pace had slowed as well. But, the marathon was an experience that changed the way I had been looking at running. Within minutes of dragging my ass across that finish-line I was already thinking about what I could have, and should have, done differently and better. I decided immediately that I would be running another marathon but that I would do the next one right. This meant that I would have to take the steps to lose the extra weight and if it included giving up gravy then so be it. I’m twenty pounds lighter now and getting close to my self-imposed “maximum weight to start marathon training” goal and I’m feeling optimistic that this will be the year of my second marathon. I don’t often get asked why I run any more but when asked what has motivated me to loose weight, the answer is “So I can run.” Running works".

    I came into ERC on Sunday afternoon looking for a new pair of running shoes. The staff was extremely helpful finding the perfect shoe for me. They performed a gait analysis and determined that I need a shoe with more support. They brought out several options for me to try, and I left with a great pair of shoes. Thank you ERC!! I am very satisfied. Thanks, Bryan Luoma

    It takes time to find the right shoe
    I needed a combination walking/running shoe and the folks at Eugene Running Company took all the time necessary to find me the right shoe. Video was very helpful. Thanks!
