John Lesteberg Has Definitely Fallen Down the Running Worm Hole


Today I’m chatting with John Lesteberg, a guy that checks all of the boxes for an ultra runner.

Beard. Works at a running store. Homebrewer.

Seriously, what more do you want from a trail/ultra runner?

Thanks Dear!

John hasn’t always been a runner.

In fact, he only started running because his wife wanted to sign up for a half marathon and asked him to join her.

John agreed, as any good husband would.

A few weeks later, his wife opted out of the half but John was hooked.

And he pretty much hasn’t stopped running since!

The Value of a Local Running Store

Earlier this year, John started working at the Fargo Running Company, the locally owned running store in Fargo, ND.

We talke for a bit about the value of having a running store in your town, and why it’s worth spending a few extra bucks at the local store instead of ordering all of your gear online.

If you don’t have a running store in your town, you may not have the option of shopping local.

But if you do, shopping locally does a lot to support your local running community.

And if nothing out, the local running shop is a great place to hang out and talk with other runners about the sport that we all love!
