My Running Philosophy

This is true regardless of your age, running experience or training schedule.  This is true when running in midsummer heat, through the brutal cold of February blizzard or in perfect, climate controlled conditions of your local gym.  This is true on days when you wake up and can’t wait to crush a personal record and it’s even more true on days when you don’t want to get out of bed.

The first mile always sucks.  But runners know something that non-runners can never understand—the happiness that lies just beyond the first mile.  And, if you can just get past that first mile and push past that first, uncomfortable, miserable part of the run…then everything will get so much better.

FMS is dedicated to helping runners of all levels push past that proverbial First Mile and finding true running happiness.

We offer only the highest quality moisture wicking shirts, sweatshirts, shorts and all running gear complete with our sublimation process to ensure there’s no peeling or fading.  If you not on the road be sure to check out our collection of hats and street wear to let everyone you know just what you think about the first mile. We stand behind all of our products and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Welcome to the FMS family.
