age 68 Mark brings fitness and strength
training experts to the shop to help
runners stay healthy and encourage those
just beginning to run. He and his wife
Joan, also a runner, enjoy sharing the
opportunity of organizing local sponsored
events. They also enjoy biking and yoga,
in addition to their running and walking.
Bauman’s Runner’s and Walking Shop has
10 qualified employees who will spend
time with customers to ensure complete
satisfaction during and after purchases.
With many years in the community – and
as the first running shop of its kind in the
Flint area – Bauman’s was very unique at
the time of its opening. Since then, the
shop has grown into its current home on
West Hill Road, between I-475 and US 23.
Bauman feels the best thing about having
a business in this area is the people and
the many relationships he has built over
the past 40 years, and the ability to help
others find delight in the sport of running.
A recent visitor – in fact, a retired nurse,
who should know what she is talking
about – said, “Running and walking are
good for everyone. They get the mind off
daily troubles, keep the stress level down,
and improve sleep. Running also impacts
the cardiovascular system, which will help
lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
What many runners and walkers love
about this exercise regime is the discipline
it brings into all areas of life!”
Running is discipline…it’s doing what
needs to be done, even if you don’t
feel like putting on the new running or
walking shoes, at least at first. Running is
cheaper than therapy, so decide to visit
Bauman’s Running and Walking Shop...
and run this town!
