Upstate Artist Lacey Hennessy spent eight hours on June 4 painting a mural on the side of Running-ina specialty shoe store offering brand name running shoes, apparel and accessories in Greenville.
The mural, located at 1301 E. Washington St., depicts a person running with the words “You got this” written on the sole of one of the person’s shoes. It was commissioned by store owner Dane Simmons and building owner Thomas Croft to accommodate an extension to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The widened trail will pass the base of the Run In building on Richland Way under Washington Street and into Cleveland Park.
Run In’s “You Got This” mural is inspired by common challenges facing the local community and the nation as a whole, Hennessey said.
“Whether it’s working out, walking the dog, taking a stroll with the kids, or driving down Washington Street, we wanted to remind you daily that ‘You Got This,'” Hennessey said. “The coloring of the mural is playful and bold. I was inspired by the bright, energetic colors found on the sports equipment inside the store and tied in with some of the natural colors found around the building.
