A lot has changed in our lives in the last two weeks. The many things we have taken for granted have been taken away from us, changed and altered. Amidst this chaos, there are aspects of our lives we can control, and that there is a finish line to these hard times. 

I have always found a moving body is a healthy body. An active mind is a healthy mind. Finding what is constant in your life is essential. Through these hard times, seek more of that constant. A constant for me is lacing up my running shoes everyday, and going for a run. But my “lacing up my shoes” may be your cracking open a new book, grabbing an instrument you have sitting in its case collecting dust, finding a new pattern to crochet, prying open the toy chest for the childhood board games, or starting a family puzzle. 

While we try and navigate through uncharted waters, I have found that my running seems to be the only “normal” part of my day. I have found that, more than ever, it has helped clear my mind, stay focused on the present, and not dwell on the uncontrollable. Running is a time for me to be closer to my faith, to appreciate more and more what I often overlook day to day. I encourage you to find something in your life that does the same.

“Time is a monster that cannot be reasoned with. It responds like a snail to our impatience, then it races like a gazelle when you can’t catch your breath.”  Seek what makes you feel alive, and don’t be afraid to challenge your body and mind. It will be a rewarding distraction during these unprecedented times. Times that seem to be forever. Let me reassure you there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and the tape is waiting to be broken at the finish line.

To our Customers, Friends & Community,

On this day 20 years ago, we put the keys in our doors and began our journey, otherwise known as TEDS.  This weekend 20 years later, we had big plans for a large celebration to thank all of you – our friends and customers. Many of you have been there since day one, and you’re still with us today.  

Two weeks ago it was clear we would not be able to hold our 20th Anniversary event as COVID-19 began to spread across the world,  region and our state.

As a small business owner, and member of the Keene community, I’ve made another hard, yet important decision to do what I feel is best for our store; keep our staff, customers, and community safe.

Effective immediately, Ted’s will be temporarily closing our retail store for two weeks. We will plan on reopening on April 3rd, but will reasses as needed.  In our 20 years of being open, this was one of the hardest decisions we have had to make.  Please know, it could also be one of our most important decisions for our community.

It is our mission to serve our community for another 20+ years, and we want to look back and know that we did our part to keep our community safe.  
In celebration of our 20th anniversary during our temporary closure with any online gift sale purchase of $100.00 or more you will get $20.00 in-store credit to use at the same time. 

 Keep moving – we are still here for curbside pick up orders and offering free shipping on any orders. You can see most of what is in store by visiting: https://www.tedsports.com/browse-store/ 

If you are looking for something just call me anytime, even if you just want to talk! 603-357-8337 or tedsports1@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks and thank you for all the continued support.


Ted

A new website “Run603” has been developed as a resource for runners and race organizers to post and share races being held in the southwestern area of NH. Anyone holding a race can submit their race to the race calendar at http://www.run603.com.

“As a business who’s mission is to support our local community, we see an ever increasing number of running/walking event fundraisers each year.  All of these events raise money for great causes, but nowhere locally existed a calendar to keep them all in one place for Southwestern NH.  We launched Run603.com to be an umbrella calendar site for race directors to plan their date around what already existed, and for runners to pick and choose what local race they might be interested in participating in.  We hope this site will be used regularly, and will become a mainstay for the run/walk community here in the Greater Keene area.”  – Ted McGreer

Vionic footwear is not only one of the hottest brands in today’s footwear market, the essential stability they offer helps support natural alignment from the ground up, providing all day comfort.

 On Saturday, May 18th, Ted’s Shoe & Sport will host Vionic Day, a day-long special event where customers can learn more about Vionic sandals and how they can help alleviate heel pain.

 “When your feet are achy or fatigued they move in less predictable patterns,” explains Ted McGreer, owner of Ted’s Shoe & Sport. “The additional support and fit underneath your feetwith Vionic sandals makes movement more predictable.” 


Vionic’s mission began in 1979 with the work of renowned podiatrist Phillip Vasyli, known to his friends and colleagues as a “bone healer.” His heat-moldable orthotic, one of the first of its kind, revolutionized the industry and laid the groundwork for Vionic’s stylish range of shoes, sandals, and boots. 


“You perform best when your feet feel comfortable,” says McGreer. “Your footwear becomes an extension of your body. Wearing Vionic sandals helps to complete a three-dimensional match of your foot, for total ankle to knee to hip support. There’s really nothing quite like these sandals in our industry!”


Customers can browse over 30 different Vionic styles, and meet the Vionic Rep who will be on-hand to answer product questions. Customers will also receive a free gift with any Vionic purchase.
