The All-Mighty Dollar and Being Short-Staffed: A 605 Running Company Dilemma

Greg Koch - Owner - 605 Running Company ​ This weekend, The Bridges is closed because we are "short-staffed." While it's true that I wish we could maintain regular business hours, is 605 Running Company truly short-staffed, or are we just incredibly busy? Today, we timed a 5K in Harrisburg, timed a triathlon in Mitchell, hosted the 1st Saturday Group Run at The Cookie Jar, had a coach at a race in Viborg, and kept our Downtown store open. We describe our business as an ecosystem, but we are often judged solely by our sales, especially our weekend sales. This makes weekends like this one bitter ..read more

By: Greg Koch Think about a time where you asked somebody how they are doing and they looked you in the eye and said, “I’m fine.” They tell you this even when you clearly know they are actually not fine. “I’m fine.” Might mean they don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to burden you with their problems, or don’t think you’ll truly understand what is going on. I know for a fact I’ve done this millions of times with my wife. Hey, we all got issues we are working on and not talking about things or in some cases talking too much about things, is my thing. Trust me, I am indeed not fine ..read more

By: Greg Koch Are you familiar with “The Man in the Arena”? If you are a sports fan, you’ve probably been familiarized by this from the docuseries about Tom Brady with the same title. Or if you are a TED Talk fan/follower of Brené Brown you are most likely familiar with, “The Power of Vulnerability” and putting yourself in “The Arena” so to speak. “The Man in the Arena” is a quote from a speech given by former US President Theodore Roosevelt in 1910. I understand the speech to be about the importance of taking action and to not allow yourself to be consumed with fear of failure or criticis ..read more

Cresting Tuthill, Limitations, and Toe Space

By: Morgan Sauer Anticipation. A feeling each one of us is familiar with. It follows close behind each step of our day waiting to for its time. A time like running a race on an unknown course. Or in shoes you’ve never raced in before. Or at an appointment with a doctor, you’ve never met. No matter the reason, that electrifying urgency and anxiety leading up to something new or unknown isn’t something we’ll ever gain distance from. No matter how secure our lives may seem. My success in running has been born more from pure determination than any kind of in-born skill. I was always ..read more

Conquering your Lone Peak 26.52.27

by Morgan Sauer The Lone Peak. A significant name for a shoe by far. But when compared to its trail shoe counterparts, like the Superior and Olympus from Altra’s line up, it doesn’t quite ring the same bell of traditional victory. It evokes a different kind of thought. Because what is a “lone peak”? Well, it’s a physical location for starters. The Lone Peak takes its name from a peak in the Wasatch Range where the original shoe was initially tested on the Wasatch Front 100 Mile in 2010 by one of Altra’s Co-Founders Brian Beckstead.  The Lone Peak was one of the first shoes Altra ever c ..read more
