Lorraine gets her new venture up and running.
The ex-Coventry Godiva Harrier, who won a bronze medal in the 1986 Commonwealth Games after finishing fifth two years earlier in the 800m final at the Los Angeles Olympics, admits she can't compete with the larger sports outlets but as regards running, that's a different story - she's been there and worn the Great Britain vest!
She said: "We sell trainers, spikes and all the fitness gear for men and women while the shop also offers aerobic classes and a sports therapist.
"There are also running and cycling machines to test out the shoewear," added the 39-year-old daughter of Gerry Baker, the former Coventry City and Scotland soccer ace.
Contact Lorraine or Ian on 02476 384842 for more information.
