Occupation: Owners of Go! Running in Little Rock
Originally from: London, UK (Gary) & Buffalo, NY (Erin)
Home now: Little Rock


These former track stars originally moved here to attend the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where they met and enjoyed fruitful athletic careers. After graduation and some moving around, they realized Fayetteville, and later Little Rock, was where they wanted to be. “The quality of life here and the people are amazing,” Gary said. Erin credits the welcoming people as the main reason she fell for Arkansas. The duo’s love for running and fitness led them to open Go! Running, a popular gear shop that’s deeply rooted in the community. “It’s been a wonderful place to raise our children,” Erin said, “and the community continues to become ‘richer’ with new experiences.”
