Lindsay Scheiwiller

Lindsay is in charge of bringing balance and harmony to the store. She is as much of an avid ultrarunner as she is a wine lover. She feels just as comfortable in a pair of racing flats as she does in a pair of cute flip-flops. She is also an expert in pretending that Adam's jokes are actually funny so as not to injure his fragile ego. To compliment her life of balance she has won numerous age group awards in races that range anywhere from a 5K up to a 100K...she even has age group wins in races that are measured in miles as well.

Some of Lindsay's notable race finishes include:
- Chimera 100 (2nd female overall)
- The Bear 100 Mile Endurance Run
- San Diego 100 Mile Endurance Run (3rd female overall)
- Bishop High Sierra 100k (1st age group)
- Croom Fools 50k
- Old Pueblo 50 Miler
