Joe Fitzhugh came to Fleet Feet Mishawaka in spring of 2018. Our team was immediately impressed with generosity of spirit, motivation, and kindness. He was promoted to FFRC Head Coach in May 2018.
Coach Joe began his running career shortly after high school. "I wanted to do a 5k, just to say I did one, and became addicted. I have done countless 5k’s, 10k’s and multiple half marathons. I finished my first marathon in September 2018!" He is currently working on bachelor’s degree of Sports and Exercise Science at Indiana University South Bend while running on their Cross Country team. Coaching is quickly becoming a huge passion for him, "I have coached multiple runners to distances they never thought they would achieve and now I get to do just that for a living at Fleet Feet Mishawaka! The local running community in South Bend/Notre Dame/Mishawaka is just so welcoming to all distances and paces and I am proud to be part of it and add more runners every day!" Coach Joe is taking the FFRC to new heights, and he is always open to any questions you might have! You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org any time!
