Welcome to FootPrints! 

FF 15K 2013 StartThe 2013 Fleet Feet 15K-Run into Buffalo is in the books.  The race drew 600 runners to the streets of Buffalo starting at Canalside, running up Delaware Avenue and heading back to the finish line in downtown.  The weather reports in the week before the race threatened everything from thunderstorms to heat and humidity. 
For the dozens of volunteers checking in early that morning, light showers and low gray clouds greeted them.  For the 600 runners taking off a 15K run, sun, thick air and humidity challenged them.  The weather conditions definitely made for  some slower times in the 7th running of the Fleet Feet 15K.
The overall winners in the Open Men's Race had #1 from Syracuse - C. Fred Joslyn with a time of 48:22 and #2 from Pennsylvania - Colin Leak  with a time of 49:42.  The 3rd Overall Male was from Buffalo - Chris Walters in a duel with #2 finishing in 49:44.  The overall winners in the Open women's Race also had #1 from the Syracuse area - Laurel Leone in 56:11, 12th overall in the race.  The 2nd and 3rd Overall Female finishers were from Western New York - Jennifer Boerner in 1:00:47 and Kaila Proulx in 1:02:22.
The Fleet Feet 15K did not host the USATF Masters Championship in 2013 yet we still had great running in the Masters Category.  The Male division was lead by Marc Andrews of Rochester in 52:53 and 5th overall followed by 2 WNY runners - Jim Park in 54:39 and Peter Osmond in 55:51.  The Womens Masters field had local runners in #1 - Patricia Hilbert in 1:06:30 and Liz Randell in 1:07:14 with Rebecca Duberry of Rochester taking 3rd in 1:08:14.
FF 15K 2013 1Overall a great race with positive feedback from the runners.  Thanks go out to all the volunteers who came out to support the Fleet Feet 15K-Run into Buffalo.  The young runners from cross-country teams across WNY to members of the running community and others committed to youth fitness - your help on race day makes this event great.  Thanks to our sponsors - Brooks Running, Wegmans and the Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission and our product sponsors - Fat Bob's Smokehouse, Fluid Hydration, Once Again Nut Butters and the Diocese of Buffalo and Kissling Interests for providing the on-course water.
FF 15K 2013 2The runners, the volunteer, our sponsors all influence SOS - Shoes on Students, our not-for-profit initiative to provide new Brooks training shoes to high school runners of need in our community.  From this year's race, we expect to provide 300 new pairs of training shoes - influencing the lives of young athletes.  Again, a BIG Thank YOU!!! 
Watch for photos from our shoe distribution over the next few weeks.

Not a beginner, but not quite ready for a half marathon? Finally ready to break your record at the Turkey Trot? Graduated No Boundaries and aren't sure what's next?
Join Fleet Feet Momentum!
This group is for those runners who can run a 5k comfortably and are ready to race the 8K Turkey Trot. This is the next step beyond the No Boundaries program for those looking to progress to the next level. There are no mentors in this group, nor is there a run/walk option. If you are still at the run/walk level we recommend you complete the No Boundaries program again with the run group before moving on to this group. This group is straight running from the get go! Come motivated to carry the MOMENTUM through the finish line!

New Apparel has hit our wall! 
Fall styles are arriving left and right! 

Men, fall comfort's name is Brooks right now. The LSD Lite Jacket is available in a fancy blue and black combination, or in Nightlife orange for those of you who take to the streets after dark. The Nightlife Vest is available as well. Not sure it is jacket weather yet? Try on the Essential Run Vest instead. Not only does it have amazing wind protection, but it has BIG POCKETS. Yes you can hold your cellphone in one pocket and gels in the other. It is the ultimate spring/fall vest for your marathon and half marathon training. Pair it with the Rev LS II shirt and the matching Sherpa Shorts and you are good to go. 

Ladies, Brooks has some amazing new apparel for you as well. That lovely Run Happy Shirt that everyone likes is now available in a long sleeve raspberry color. A perfect pairing to the Infiniti Capri that has a very cool black and grey pattern. Definitely not your average pair of capris. If you are looking for a vest, try on the Essential Run Vest. Tons of storage and clean lines that are flattering on everyone. Jacket lovers don't worry, the LSD Lite Jacket is a perfect fit for this transitional weather and conveniently rolls into its own pocket for storage.
