Saturday @ Inov-8

Lisa, Carter, and I opened up the doors at inov-8 to a few friends on Saturday. For a while there has been some call for us to do this from people in the area. Both friends and strangers that have a tough time finding the inov-8 line in New England.

We have been thinking of doing this once a month to respond to that demand. It's a good way to connect with the local community as well as serve customers. So this past weekend was our first attempt at it. We asked friends to come to make the trial run easier to manage and we had a great time and learned a lot about how to improve the process.

The plan was to open up at 1 then run at 2PM. This was reasonably on track but somewhere along the way 2PM came 2:09 became 2:30 +. In future we'll try to be more on time since visitors are planning their day and in some cases their running around this run-from-inov-8.

Also, we'll move to the back -- back in the warehouse -- and have people be a bit more autonomous with style and size selection.

The run was great though. Friends Ryan and Ron were there and Ron brought along Jim and Paul, both nice guys and all great runners. We did 5.7 according to Paul's GPS at a pretty good clip. I'm looking forward to running more with these guys when ever time allows.
