Why were you drawn to working at Running Central? I was drawn to Running Central mostly because of the positive atmosphere. Running Central has such an aura to it starting at the storefront itself and extending to the community as a whole. I am proud to be able to tell people that I work at Running Central.

What do you like the most about working at Running Central? The people are what I like most about working at Running Central. My amazing coworkers, our incredible customers, all of the dedicated members of our training group, our business partners – the list goes on and on. I have met so many great people since being hired at Running Central. Words cannot say how thankful I am for that.

How do you stay active? I stay active mostly by running and enjoy outdoor activities as a whole. I found running the summer after graduating college when I trained for and completed my first 5K and have been hooked ever since. I don’t consider myself a hugely talented runner, but I am very proud of what I have accomplished so far and have zero doubt that the best is yet to come. My next major goal is to complete my first marathon and I am beyond excited for the journey. I like to consider myself very good at representing the middle of the pack!
