The Everyday Athlete Store!

Nope, not mine!

Last night at the Veloforma Pro Team launch party I learned that one of our elite riders, Robin Secrist (she’s pretty incredible!),  is dating a nice fellow named Wade Praeger who just happens to be the owner of a store in Kirkland, Washington called “Everyday Athlete“.

Wade was super gracious and did not threaten me with a lawsuit, which was cool (thanks, Wade).  We talked about the name and what it means to us.

I checked out his bio online and was excited to learn that he previously worked at Jock n Jill, a Seattle running store that I absolutely worshiped as a high school cross-country runner.  Every year, my parents took me on a special trip to the store to get fitted for the perfect pair of running shoes.  Over the years, Jock n Jill also hooked me up with racing flats, track spikes, blingy socks, and warm weather gear.  Every trip there was a special treat for me and I anticipated them with great excitement. Who knows, maybe Wade was one of the pros who hooked me up with just the right kicks for my jacked-up feet!

I get up to the Seattle area every couple months so I’m putting a stop in Kirkland on my next itinerary.  Wade, set a hat aside for me! I’m coming to storm the retail space!

  1. Hi there Heidi,
    I’ve got a hat and a water bottle here with your name on it, (both of your name’s in fact). I am confident your experience here at your namesake will be everything you are expecting. If not, I will commit hari-kaki here on the spot, (not really). I love the blog. Take care,
    Wade
