Small Business of the Month
Greater Lafayette Commerce selected Tri-N-Run Small Business of the Month for August 2014.
As a family, we have moved around the United States and Japan during Travis’ Marine Corps career. When we moved to Lafayette Indiana as our last duty station, we immediately knew this was the town we wanted to settle down in.
For many years our dream has been to open a business. As a couple, we bring both aspects of fitness to our business: someone working towards staying fit and a competitive athlete; Tami enjoys working out for her health while Travis enjoys training to compete in triathlons, marathons, and multi-sport events.
Our desire is to provide Lafayette and the surrounding communities with access to gear and support to help achieve any goal you set your mind to, no matter how big or small.

Tami enjoys cross training, jogging, karate, and the challenges of running a small business. Tami is most encouraged with watching people reach their goals while tackling the mental and physical challenges we all face in the process. Being a small part of that process is a great honor. Prior to opening the store, she has homeschooled their two girls and toted them around to swim practices. Before that, Tami was a Sr. Project Research Associate in the clinical research field assisting in the documentation of experimental medication and therapies.
Travis retired from the Marine Corps in 2013. He loves the sport of triathlon and has competed at all levels of triathlon, from sprint to Ironman distances and has completed numerous marathons. Family vacations are planned according to race locations! His desire is to provide the Greater Lafayette Indiana area and surrounding counties with access to a specialty store to support the three disciplines of triathlon: swimming, biking, and running
