Kendra Loignon (Owner) and Chris Loignon (Coach)
Chris and Kendra aren’t new to the city of Greenville. Kendra received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from East Carolina University and has been a registered nurse for the past 9 years concentrating in OB and women’s health. Kendra has a natural passion to provide care for people no matter their story, but really loves having fun with children too. Kendra loved watching the kids of Crazy Running have fun in Winston-Salem and knew she could do the same in Greenville. As a mom of two active boys, she saw this as a perfect fit for her, her family and the Greenville community. Kendra has always been a fan of high energy group exercise classes, but decided to add running to her fitness routine after being inspired by Chris during his half and full marathon trainings. She enjoys pushing herself to reach new running goals…and of course, running around with her boys!
Chris received his bachelor’s (2008) and master’s degrees (2009) in Exercise and Sport Science from East Carolina University. After leaving ECU Chris was searching for a career that he could use his passion: helping people be active and healthy. Chris spent the past 5 years working at a local running store in Winston-Salem called Fleet Feet Sports where he was sharing his love of running and how it can change everything. In December 2016 Chris and Kendra visited Greenville to witness how much the city has grown. This is when they saw the love the community has for active healthy lifestyles so they made the move with their two sons, Cohen and Knox. While growing up Chris was a year round soccer player but always found time for track workouts to be a stronger and faster soccer player. He believes you don’t have to be a runner to run, all athletes can be better at their sport by incorporating a running program.
