Today we’d like to introduce you to Lance Muzslay.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Lance. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Sole Sports started in 2007. I had previously co-owned another running store for 5 years but the relationship with my previous business partner went bad. I then connected with Karen Seymour in a new partnership and Sole Sports was born. Prior to the running shoe business I worked as an engineer in the semiconductor industry and was an avid triathlete. I specialized in the Ironman distance and competed in Ironman Hawaii every year from 1992-2002. My best finish was 28th place in 1995 when I won my age group. I went on to compete professionally in 2001 and 2002. The combination of my endurance and analytical backgrounds was great for launching into the running shoe business.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The journey of Sole Sports has been relatively smooth although not without its challenges. Our biggest asset has been an amazing team without which we not have been nearly as successful.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Sole Sports Running Zone – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We specialize in providing warm, unpretentious, yet expert service. We provide a video gait analysis as part of our shoe fitting process.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
No major plans at this time.
