Alice Loncto - Owner of Fleet Feet Buffalo
I am a runner for life taking up the sport in 1977 – competing in road races from 5K to the marathon over the years. I truly love the sport & the Buffalo running community ! I run 6 days per week & my training is now focused on running a Boston Marathon qualifying time - hopefully at the Fall's Marine Corps Marathon. I graduated from Buffalo State College with a degree in education. Meeting Dan at Buffalo State started our relationship – as a couple & as dedicated runners. I retired from a full time job as an Underwriting Manager for OneBeacon Insurance in 2007. You will now find me at Fleet Feet full time as the Marketing coordinator for our medical provider programs, our training programs and helping our customers to meet their individul fitness goals. I also assist with the marathon training group & our weekly group runs. The Buffalo parks have been a big part of my running world & I am a member of the Olmsted Parks Conservancy Advisory Board. Dan & I also race direct the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge as well as the Fleet Feet 15K.
Dan Loncto - Owner of Fleet Feet Buffalo
I have been running competitively for over 40 years. I began at Kenmore East High School as an 800 meter runner. I attended Buffalo State College, graduating with a degree in Business Studies. I was lucky enough to meet Alice while we were both attending Buffalo State. I took up road racing in 1980 and completed my first marathon in 1982. Since then, I have completed over 25 marathons, including Boston (7 times), New York, London and Chicago. My marathon career was highlighted by a 3rd place finish in my age group and a marathon PR in 1997. I ran 2:45:29 at age 47. Since we opened Fleet Feet Sports in April of 2002, I spend most of my time working on growing our business and coaching our highly successful training groups. I also continue to race direct the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge, Buffalo’s largest road race.
