Shelby and Fred Joslyn
We’re so excited to be part of the Harrisburg community. We’re passionate about helping others achieve their fitness goals, so opening a Fleet Feet store is a dream come true. We have worked in the running and walking industry for over 8 years and are thrilled to help support healthy living in the Capitol region.
Fred has coached thousands of runners over the past 10 years. He has coached a broad spectrum of participants ranging from walkers and new runners to avid marathoners. Fred began coaching at the collegiate level coaching at Binghamton University and Cortland University. He began coaching community based running programs in 2010 and has been helping people achieve their goals ever since.
Fred’s love for running is evident. He has not taken a day off of running in over 11 years—do not try this at home. He was a Division 3 National Champion at Cortland and he qualified for the 2012 Olympic marathon trials. He has run the Berwick Run for the Diamonds 12 times, the Steamtown Marathon 3 times and the Boston Marathon 4 times.
Fred and I met in high school and he is the person who inspired me to become a runner. I was lucky enough to run cross country and track and field at Syracuse University and have even run a few marathons including the Steamtown Marathon, Detroit Marathon and Boston Marathon. I'm sure I'll do another marathon soon and the idea of trail and ultra running is also inspiring to me.
We have two kids, Chloe 5 and Gabriel 4. They both ran their first races at age 2.
If you see us around, please share your story! We’d love to hear it.
We’ll see you on the roads,
Fred, Shelby, Chloe and Gabriel Joslyn
