Andrew Holbrook is the Manager, Apparel Buyer, Pub Run Guru and FIT Professional at Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke, joining the team in October 2010. He is originally from Cookeville, Tennessee.
Andrew started running in 1994, in order to meet the cute girls that wear short shorts! He has always had a very competitive spirit, and enjoys challenging himself and his limits on a consistent basis. He loves to run on the Roanoke River Greenway, and feels we are so fortunate to have this local infrastructure for the runners and walkers of our community. His favorite race is the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee. Andrew loves this race because it has so much unique character, and it’s always on his annual “to-do” list!
Andrew’s running must-have items are arm warmers, because they make any short sleeve shirt into a long sleeve shirt! Post run, he is a self-proclaimed smoothie fiend, and tries to add fresh ginger root and turmeric to his homemade smoothies, for their anti-inflammatory benefits.
When he’s not running, Andrew loves to cook, watch Netflix, and even enjoys a good book!
