Paul Heintz - Owner
Paul is the store owner, or Mr Mojo, to many of his running friends. Paul ran his first marathon, the NYC marathon, in 1984 and has continued to run every distance between the 5K and marathon, including 200-mile relay events ever since. A veteran of 30+ marathons, including several Boston efforts, Paul continues to have a passion for both road and trail running. In addition to running Paul is also a triathlete and just completed his first full Ironman in October of 2013 in Wilmington, NC the Beach2Battleship Ironman event. Paul's favorite sport is rugby but he is semi-retired and prefers to strap on the running shoes rather than the rugby boots these days and can be found most days working at the store dispensing thoughts and suggestions to interested runners, walkers and triathletes.
Barb Trimble - Running/Triathlon Specialist
My name is Barb Trimble and I have been running since high school. Back then it was all short distance but now I love the longer races. I have completed two marathons and several half marathons. The simplicity of pulling on a pair of running shoes and escaping life for awhile is what drives me. Recently I have dabbled with triathlons and found them challenging but fun. Running will always be my passion and I love helping others enjoy the sport as well.
Paul Wade - Running Specialist
Hi! My name is Paul Wade, sometimes known to the Mojo Nation as, "the other Paul." I call myself a born again runner. I ran in junior high and high school on the track and cross country teams. I then took a 20 year hiatus and started running again about 13 years ago as a way to improve my health and lose weight. A year later and 50lbs. lighter, I started running in some 5K races. To my surprise, I earned some age group awards and then I was hooked! Now, I will run where ever I can, treadmill to trails, 5K's to marathons, mud runs to trail races. Not only do I love to run, I truly enjoy being around and helping runners, so being here at Mojo Running is a natural fit.
Lauren Deitzer - Running Specialist
Hi, my name is Lauren. My dad and sister got me into running at the beginning of junior high and I’ve been hooked ever since. For me, running has been everything from a stress reliever to a way to meet new people in my life so far. And with four varsity letters and a number one spot on the Fairfield Cross Country team, it gives me a huge sense of accomplishment as well. I also enjoy running road races, the atmosphere is great! For anyone thinking about starting running, my advice would be this: there will always be ups and downs, but in the end, the joy and satisfaction of accomplishment will far outweigh the pain it may have taken to get there. So run hard and run fast, because everyone has a finish line, and when you get there, you don’t want to regret anything.
Leanne Gooch - Running/Triathlon Specialist
My name is Leanne Gooch and I've been running since high school. I ran mostly 5 and 10K's until my first full marathon in 1997. Since then, I have run several marathons including; Boston, Chicago, Columbus, and the Flying Pig. Running wasn't enough punishment for me, so I took on the challenge of triathlon in 1998. I have completed four Ironman distances including Lake Tahoe in September of 2013. I am a certified personal trainer and I look forward to helping athletes of all levels achieve their goals as a running and triathlon specialist here at Mojo Running.
Brady Holmer - Running Specialist
My name is Brady Holmer, and I am currently a runner for Northern Kentucky University. I began running cross country in 7th grade just to get into shape for basketball, but running quickly became something I both enjoyed and was good at. I won every single race during 8th grade cross country, and decided to quit basketball and just run. I don.t regret the choice one bit! During high school I earned All GMC 3 times, won 2 team GMC championships, and qualified for regionals numerous times. In track, the 3200m is my main event and I also run the 1600m. My senior year of XC I was GMC champion and runner of the year, as well as District champion. Running long distances is what I love most about running, but the feeling of effortless speed is great. Working here at Mojo is an amazing experience to talk and interact with runners who share my passion. When I.m older I will not doubt continue to run, and would love to give marathon running a shot and hopefully qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials. To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. . Steve Prefontaine
Brenna Hallum - Running Specialist
Hello there! I am Brenna Hallum! I have been running for half my life and needless to say it’s my addiction. I ran cross country and track throughout middle school and high school. In high school I gained a total of 7 varsity letters, winning state with my 4x800 team my senior year, and attending state another three times for cross country and two for track. Now in college I race 5k, 10k and have just finished my second half marathon at a 1:42:15 which was super exciting. I can’t say running has always been easy with the injuries I have had to deal with, but if you do get into it I promise it will be worth it. The people you meet, experiences you collect, and goals you reach will blow you away and remind you about the simple joy running brings. Happy running!
