A Founder’s Story – Part I
It All Starts with General Fitness, Right? (Well, sort of).
Stuffitts is really intertwined with my life. It’s an interesting story. I wouldn’t say typical. But here it is.
In 2006, I had let myself get ridiculously out of shape for about a decade. Finally, one morning I woke up, looked in the mirror and really didn’t recognize the fat, tired guy looking back at me. I hit 220lb (and, no, it most surely not muscle). I was 36. Mid-life. Where did the last decade go?

I was fed up and decided that I will not live like this anymore. No matter what. From that day, I started a long, slow, tedious effort to get back in shape.
After about 9 months I was down to about 175lb. I had come back from the abyss.
So what does this have to do with the founding of Stuffitts Shoe Savers? You’ll see….Little did I know how hazardous triathlons can be to your health.
