Justin Garrard

Justin moved to Tallahassee in 2016 and brings both knowledge in run specialty footwear and personal running experience.  A 2009 graduate of Ottawa University, Justin was an All-American distance runner for the Braves and enjoyed the sport so much he became a Cross Country/Track & Field Coach.  First for his alma mater, then stops at William Jewell College, University of Pennsylvania, and now a Volunteer at Florida State University, working with the men’s distance team.

While coaching at the University of Pennsylvania, Justin worked at Philadelphia Runner, a run specialty store known as the headquarters of the Philly running community and popular for their custom fit process with footwear.  He was an Assistant Manager at their Manayunk location and fit everyone from beginners to elite marathoners.  The passion for his work comes from making a difference for each individual by helping them get to where they want to go.

Justin is a student of the sport and always enjoys sharing what he has learned along the way with anyone looking for it.  He still trains and competes regularly, pursuing his ultimate goal of making the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials.  Justin’s wife Kayli is also an avid runner.  As a former USATF Club National Champion, the two can push each other.  Kayli works as the Director of Sports Nutrition at Florida State University.  You’ll most likely find either one of them out running on the roads or trails of Tallahassee!
