Tonight, a chance meeting that happened over a year and a half ago came full circle.
One morning, Brett Lamb, owner of Fleet Feet Sports SF, was out with his son bright and early to reserve a picnic table at Crissy Field’s West Bluff area. It just so happened that the Concrete Runners were there, also, reserving tables. As Brett waited for his friends and family to arrive, his curiosity peaked as he saw this group setting up their event. He decided to wander over and see what they were up to. It was the Concrete Runners Season 1 Kick-Off event. He was amazed by what the group was pulling off. After that he started following the Concrete Runners on social media, interested in seeing where this group was heading for the future.
As Brett told us this story, it wasn’t until today that I realized that this is how he came to know the Concrete Runners, which made tonight’s event even more special.
Concrete Runners is thankful for Fleet Feet hosting a fun 5k run, with fantastic hospitality from beginning to end. The night started with welcoming us into to their new store before they open to the public, then warm-up stretches in the beautiful Yerba Buena Park, onto a perfect night for a 5k run. The evening ended with a private happy hour space reserved at Marriott Hotel Bin 55 for all of us to hang out & enjoy drinks... And let's not forget the awesome Nike Concrete Runners x Fleet Feet Nike running hats they gave to each runner…
Thank you Fleet Feet Sports and their SF team! Good luck on your grand opening next week!!
