Owner and coach Nick Blomstedt is certified as a running coach a running coach through both the United Endurance Sports Coach Academy (UESCA) and the Jack Daniels RunSmart Project (VDOT).
Nick started his running career in high school but took a long break when he started working full-time. In 2011 he was diagnosed with late-stage colon cancer and went through a year of treatment, including chemotherapy. His experience resurrected his love of running as a way to lead a healthier lifestyle. From 2012 to 2014 he trained for and completed a handful of races, including the Austin Marathon. He immersed himself in the New Braunfels and San Marcos running communities, meeting runners of all levels of experience and abilities, including the owner of a San Marcos running store. He spent many hours at the store learning from the owner, nurturing a dream of owning his own store someday. Because of his outgoing personality and thirst for knowledge about running shoes and gear, he not only developed a high degree of engagement with the running community of New Braunfels, San Marcos and San Antonio, but he became the go-to person when people had questions about running shoes. As his knowledge has grown, so has his running career. He has now run well over 100 road races, winning many of them and qualifying for the Boston Marathon in 2020.
