Ralph and Sherri Lennon moved to Punta Gorda Florida in 2007 from Key West, Florida. Originally from Long Island New York, Ralph owned an architectural wood working business for 25 years. He then followed his heart all the way to Key West where he owned a big game charter boat business for 10 years. Sherri, who originally hails from Reno, Nevada, worked in the medical field for 15 years as a Licensed Radiology Technologist and Mammographer. Her work in the medical field eventually brought her to Key West, which is where she met Ralph. Perfect timing; perfect match!
Sherri took up running in 1977 while still living in Reno. In 1994, her hometown friend, Chuck Martin, opened Reno’s first running specialty store, Eclipse Running. As Sherri watched Chuck’s business blossom, she noted the growth and positive impact that it had within the local running community. Sherri was officially inspired to eventually open her own running specialty store; one built for and based on the needs of the community. Utilizing Ralph’s design and building skills and Sherri’s brilliant business sense and never-ending passion and commitment to the sport of running, the couple successfully opened the doors to Charlotte County’s first running specialty store on December 1, 2012.
In the store, Sherri combines her medical knowledge with her extensive running experience. She is a RRCA Certified Running Coach and although she spends many hours at the Foot Landing building the business and helping the local running community, she has found time to participate in numerous marathons, half marathons and triathlons over the years. Recently, Sherri qualified for the Boston Marathon and will proudly represent Charlotte County and The Foot Landing at this famous road race in April 2015.
