Dave & Catherine Foerster are the proud new owners of Fleet Feet Sports Fort Mill, SC. We recently moved here from Chicago and are excited to be a part of the Fort Mill community. When we were looking for a location we instantly fell in love with the hometown charm of historic Fort Mill along with the excitement of this fast growing suburb of south Charlotte.
Dave was born and raised in Wisconsin. An avid basketball player throughout his youth and into his adulthood led Dave to an active lifestyle. Adding to his love of the game he began cycling which led to running. Always a competitor, in sport as well as his career in sales, he discovered races are a great motivator to continue running for his health and to satisfy his competitive nature. Dave occupies most of his days working hard for Equifax and discovering all the Fort Mill community has to offer.
Catherine began running to get into shape as a young adult and has been at it ever since. Joining the running community was a life changing experience for her. Running fast was never the priority; more important was running to stay active and healthy. After participating in a number of local races, joining the running club and contributing to charity fund raisers through running events, she was approached by a local independent running store to manage customer sales. It was the best job Catherine ever experienced. Working with customers, finding the right fit, educating athletes about foot types and shoe categories, encouraging new runners across the finish line…none of it felt like work. She found the perfect blend working in an environment that she’s passionate about. The reality of helping non-runners become runners, much like her own running experience, and making good runners become better, has been more rewarding than she dreamed. Catherine’s passion coupled with the magnetic energy, education and support of Fleet Feet Sports is a perfect fit.
Dave & Catherine are so excited and committed to supporting and expanding the local running community of Fort Mill. We welcome everyone to stop in and experience Fleet Feet Sports Fort Mill!
