Meet Erik LaPointe, Store Manager, who joined the team in 2011
Erik steers the ship that is Ridgewood Running Company. His ability to motivate his team members & customers is the reason for Ridgewood Running Company’s loyal following. “The thing I enjoy most about Ridgewood Running Company is problem solving. Asking pointed questions and listening to the customer – stepping back & working together to find a solution is very satisfying”, says Erik. “Every person is unique and those challenges make every day exciting”.
Erik was a high school runner who rediscovered his love for the sport after a post-collegiate hiatus. He can be seen training for everything from 5K’s to Marathons.
Training Tip: The Duck Pond is a great spot for beginners & elites alike because of its mile markers and smooth surface. I also like a challenge; add a hill like Crest Road or Glen Ave.
Fun Fact: Erik loves his swoosh gear- Dri-Fit Knits & Zoom Elite running shoes. Unwinds with his Trigger Point Grid Roller. Huge sports fan- supports Arsenal in the EPL, GO GUNNERS!
