“We are obviously a business and we need to sell running shoes to make money, but I feel a very big obligation to be that hub of the community and be that leader and driver to connect people and to help out others.”
Steph Blozy is the owner of Fleet Feet Sports in West Hartford, one of the leading run specialty stores in the country. Steph is so much more than a running store owner, though: She’s truly a community builder and leader, and on this episode, she talks about how she’s built such a strong, supportive community in Connecticut. (Her “special sprinkle of magic,” she calls it.) Steph’s road to running store ownership wasn’t a straight one: She got her start as a meteorologist! Click here to hear more from Steph and about how she’s adapted during the pandemic both personally and on the job.
