My Local Running Stores Newsletter

Charlies, the owner of Fleet Feet does a nice job at his Albany store of being active in the community. Here is an example of his monthly newsletter. He uses Constant Contact as his email tool. I favor myself...

Dear Fleet Feet Sports club members:

We sincerely hope this newsletter edition finds you all well. March was an exciting month for our store! Our second Diva Night was held on March 13, with over fifty very special "Divas" in attendance. Wine tasting, massage therapy, and caricature drawings were the highlights of the evening. Arlene and I would like to thank Joe Benny, our very good friends at Back In Balance (Clifton Park), and Rich Conley for all they did to support this excellent time. No Boundaries kicked off in March as well.

No Boundaries, sponsored by New Balance is a "train to run your first 5K program." With over 35 participants we are into our second week of training and the program is off to a great start!On Sunday, March 30 we had about 40 Empire State Capital Volkssporters use our store as a start point for their 10K walk program.

The Volkssporters Club is dedicated to fun, fitness and friendship, information about the club can be gained here or by contacting Marie KlucinaHigh School track and field is in full swing, we very much look forward to seeing the results of the talented athletes we have in our community.

Road racing is also kicking into gear. Congratulations to Tom and Marcia Adams for an excellent job in race directing last week's Delmar Dash.April, as you will read, is a busy month. Our talk with George P. Kansas promises to be a highlight. Please save this date; you will be happy to have set the time aside.

We are proud for the second year to sponsor the Fleet Feet Sports Bethlehem Lady Eagles Track and Field Invitational. This ladies only event will be held on April 19th at the Bethlehem High School track. Please come out and watch these athletes perform.

That's it for now. Remember our FUN RUN on Thursday evenings. We leave from the store at 6PM, attendance is growing, this run is for ALL levels of ability.

Our Sportwalkers Club is also growing. There is technique instruction and a workout, also beginning at 6PM on Thursday evenings; we have had many requests for a walkers only club, this is only the beginning, come join us! Bring a friend!As always and with sincere thanks, Arlene and I appreciate your support.We wish you a peaceful month ahead.Charles and Arlene WoodruffProudly owningFleet Feet SportsAlbany

Thanks, I have used use guys, on and off, since I was introduced to it by a reseller you had way back when, Kevin O'Donovan of eLex Interactive - defunct now. I tried to met my Health Club owner/boss to use it, but he nixed it. Ironically he now uses Constant Contact...

BUT - I did get Vertical Response the Frozen Ropes Baseball Softball Training Franchises as I introduced it to the corp offices when I worked the and then hand held the franchisees as the signed up for it...
