About Gone For a Run
Four simple words that propels a runner into a state of pure joy that is cherished by the mind, body & soul.
I love to run. Running has fueled my energy and passion to never stop exploring, creating and enjoying life. I founded Gone For a Run because I cherish the joy in "going for a run" and I believe that the magic found when you run should be encouraged, shared and celebrated. Our story began in 2008 when my son Ryan and I ran our first organized race the NYC Marathon, in honor of my father.
Training and running for the marathon gave us the strength to get through this profoundly difficult time in our lives watching my beloved father suffer through a terminal illness. Post marathon we were captivated by the power of running and were driven to utilize our product development and marketing backgrounds to create products for runners to celebrate their accomplishments, stay motivated and fully embrace the running lifestyle.
Gone For a Run has grown to be an innovative and trusted lifestyle brand for runners. We also strive to provide support and motivation for both seasoned and new runners with our training programs and virtual race series. Our goal is to inspire people to run and cherish the running lifestyle.
