From our family to yours, our hearts go out to all our customers and their family and friends who are being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our website remains open and we are shipping daily, with the greatest of care. Unfortunately, we have a greatly reduced staff and team here now.
During these times we also feel it is important to give back to the community and we have an ongoing donation program to the American Red Cross to help raise funds for their
live-saving programs during this pandemic. Our ongoing virtual races at GoneForaRun empower families to stay active and set healthy goals during this difficult time. We also
are hosting free training workouts on FBL and great video and instructional content for cross-training.
During this unprecedented time we can't thank you enough for your continued support of ChalkTalk SPORTS, Gone For a Run and LulaLax.
Remember, 'Tough Times Don't Last But Tough People Do" Dr Robert Schuller. We will all get through this together! Stay strong, stay positive, stay active and enjoy time with your family. Thank you
for supporting our family business.
