Manager Profile

My name is Debbie Crawford, the store manager of Dick Pond Athletics in Carol Stream, IL. I have been a dedicated runner for about 15 years, completing 9 Marathons along the way along with numerous Half Marathons, 10K, 8K and 5K distance races. I have been with Dick Pond Athletics for over 9 years and have dealt with many aspects of the company. I enjoy working retail the most and getting to know the customers. I enjoy getting to learn about their running and wrestling experiences and help them to achieve their goals. I have been the leader of our Walk 2 Run program in the past and am also Co-leader of a Saturday morning run progam that we offer that runs year round. Feel free to contact me at: with any questions you may have.
