Drew Midland - Brand Manager


Drew was born in Lawrence, Kansas where he started running as soon as he learned to walk. When he moved to Virginia Beach, his 3rd grade PE teacher paced him to his first 5k road race. His competitive running career started as a youth with the Tidewater Striders for New Energy in 1997. It was not long after he was a regular Running Etc. customer. As a high school senior, Drew completed a research internship at the store. While in school and running at William and Mary, Drew worked part time becoming a shoe junkie. After graduating in 2010, Drew came back as a full time employee. Drew completed his first marathon in the summer of 2011 and continues to have fun running races with his family and friends. He lives near the beach with his bikes and cooking supplies.
