Manager Profile

My name is Joko Greenberg and I am the manager at our newest location in Park Ridge. I am new to Dick Pond Athletics but not to specialty running, a field I have worked in for the last 5 years. It has been a thrill to bring my experiences as a runner into my work to help others achieve their various exercise goals. I have been running since 1995 when I struggled to complete a mile of continuous running and have had the opportunity to compete at the high school, collegiate and elite post collegiate levels. My staff and I welcome runners, walkers and wrestlers of all abilities to come in and give us the opportunity to support them in their athletic efforts. Feel free to contact me at: with any questions you may have. Also follow us on Twitter to stay on top of all things happening in our store.

Fun Run Information

We now have a run for every type of runner.

Wednesday Night Walk 2 Run level 1
For all interested in becoming runners but have been too intimidated by the process, our classic walk to run program starts with short running intervals that gradually increase over the course of the 9 week session. The group meets at the store at 6:30pm. PLEASE NOTE WALK 2 RUN IS ON BREAK FOR THE WINTER AND WILL RESUME AGAIN IN THE SPRING

Wednesday Night Walk 2 Run level 2-
Geared towards those who are comfortable going out for a run but have consistently need walk breaks it is a perfect group to transition to from level 1. It also provides a safe way for runners to work on increasing their running distances while avoiding injury. The group meets at the store at 6:30pm

Wednesday Night Fun Run-
Easy mid week run option for those looking for company and accountability. This run provides a great opportunity to meet other local runners and stay consistent with your exercise routine.

Thursday Night Track Night
Training for a race this summer? Looking to improve your race times? Simply want a break from running the same way each run? Join us at the North Park University Track at Foster and Kedzie Aves for speed workouts. With pace groups at every level, there is a place for everyone at the track. Strides start at 6:20pm

Saturday Long Run
We are moving our Saturday morning run back to 8:30am for the cold season. With options to run anywhere from 3-20 miles, this is a perfect option for anyone training for a longer race this fall.
