Meet Our Staff:

Jus’ Running is made up of a local team of committed, friendly, and knowledgeable staff dedicated to helping you have the best experience at our store. Learn more about them below!

Luke Paulson

Luke has been with Jus’ Running since March of 2018. He began running competitively in 6th grade on his middle school cross country team and has not looked back since! When not running, Luke loves to get creative in the kitchen!

    Laura Cleghorn

    Laura has many years of retail experience. She is enjoying working for a small business and getting to know the running community better. In her free time she enjoys consignment shopping and home decor.

    Miranda Redmann

    Miranda has been a part of Jus’ Running since November of 2012, shortly after she moved to Asheville from Florida. Working at the shop renewed her passion for running and introduced her to many wonderful people that have become like family to her.

    When not running, Miranda enjoys reading, cooking, baking, spending time outdoors, helping out at races, and supporting local businesses.

    Rachel Veale

    Rachel started going to Maggot track workouts when she first moved to Asheville in the winter of 2018, and she hasn’t left the Jus’ Running community since! She spends her year split between guiding for North Carolina Outward Bound School in the summer and working at Jus’ Running in the winter. In her free time, she enjoys drinking good coffee and being in beautiful outdoor spaces. 

    Whitney Waters

    Whitney has been a regular participant at the Maggot track workouts for the past few years and has been an employee at Jus’ Running since 2018. She enjoys running local trails with her dog, Lullah.  She is a full-time graduate student at Western Carolina University, where she studies literature and professional writing and teaches an undergraduate writing course.

    Brett Baddorf
    Brett is new to Jus Running but not specialty running stores. He ran cross-country and track in high school and then in college at Samford University. As Brett and his wife have traveled he has run everywhere from Pakistan to Bhutan to the South Pole to New Zealand and everywhere in between. Only Africa, South America, and Europe remain on his goal of running a marathon on every continent. He has loved living in AVL and diving more into the endurance trail world. 
    Brett has a MDiv and is currently working on his CPE residency at the VA. He is married to Sarah and they just had their first child – welcome to parenthood! When not working at the store or the VA Brett enjoys hiking, reading, playing hockey (if there is an ice rink nearby), writing, good beer and whiskey, traveling, and exploring the forests.
