Kanayo was quite the handsome fella when he was little! That cute smile is now attached to the largest calves in the store. (And he's mighty proud of it.)

Kanayo Anekwe 

Special Events Coordinator & FIT Professional 

Where did you grow up?
I was born in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma (just outside of Oklahoma City).

How do you stay fit?
I have been staying fit since my days at Quince Orchard High School. I enjoy running, cross training and just staying active as much as I can. You can see me compete in local races throughout Montgomery County and in our nation's capital!

What's one goal you're working toward making a reality?
The one goal I want to accomplish is to complete a full marathon. Yes, you heard me correctly. I have not tackled this distance yet - so I need all the encouragement I can get!

Favorite shoe to cover the miles in?
Although I like to switch off shoes during my training, I have recently been enjoying the Brooks Adrenaline.

Something interesting about Kanayo that you may not know:
My dessert fix is cheesecake! (Please send to Fleet Feet Sports, Gaithersburg at any time!) Also, in the fall of 2003, I was part of my college's (Mount Aloysius College) inaugural cross country team!
