Pinny -- Fleet Feet Vehicle
Pinny was born in Austria in 1974. After serving in the Swiss military, Pinny retired to California. However, Pinny soon became tired of the quiet life and moved to Kingsport in order to join the Fleet Feet team. Now Pinny helps out at water stations, hauls our tents, and helps out at the Fleet Feet store. Pinny isn't shy, so if you see her out, be sure to give her and the Fleet Feet staff a wave!
