Lu An Carone-Rhodes is the owner of Princess Athletic (Bend) and Running Princess (Corvallis). She previously owned a coffee shop and a travel agency and finds owning a business to be always challenging but also fun.

Kathleen, manager of Princess Athletic, is a runner, mountain biker, skier, yogi, paddle boarder and genuinely up for anything.
She has lived in and out of Bend since the 1970s and managing Princess Athletic gives her the opportunity to do what she loves marrying fashion with adventure and encouraging everyone to just get outside!
