My name is Ella. I’m from the streets of Phoenix, where I spent my puppy-hood homeless, begging on the corner with a cardboard sign. My life has greatly improved since being hired by Newton Running where I work at the Lab in Boulder. Selling running shoes is a challenge due to my phobia of people and […]
Likes: Getting belly rubs, chewing on shoes (have only destroyed a few Newtons), going for car rides and sticking my head out the window! Dislikes: Don’t let my size and big paws fool you- anything unfamiliar scares me: strangers, loud noises, new places! But once I get to know you we’ll become best buds! I […]

As they prepare for the 2013 Leadville Trail 100, Newton Running employees Laura Tingle and Kara Henry wanted to document their journey. The name of this series, “…and then I fell down.” comes from the ladies’ tendency to get up close and personal with the ground. We hope you enjoy the show!
Originally born in New Jersey my family and I moved around often when I was younger. See, my mom was a true flower child and my dad was as free and easy as the Colorado winds… OK we were hippies and dad played drums in a band. Yep that’s me in the sweet pants around […]
