Amanda Brown

Why were you drawn to working at running central?
I love supporting small, local businesses and always enjoyed my shopping experiences at RC. I jumped at the chance to be a part of a team that cares so much about customer service.

What do you like most about working at running central?
I like hearing about customers’ experiences with running or walking, and seeing what shoes they prefer. I learn something new every day.

How do you stay active?
I began running in Spring 2014 and I didn’t enjoy it at first, but it slowly grew on me. I’m now running 10Ks and half-marathons several times a year. Nothing clears my mind or brightens my day like a run!
