RC Employees (8)

I have been a customer at RC for the past 13 years and have always been impressed with their knowledge, expertise and superior customer service. My goal for the past year had been to retire my pediatric nursing career and join the RC staff. Now that I am a part of this great group of people I have no regrets. I love working with people who have a true passion for running and a genuine desire to help every customer who walks in the door, whether they are a walker or runner.

For me personally, running has been a part of my life for 13 years. I have met a lot of great people and run many races. My favorite was doing the Goofy Challenge in Disney 4 years ago. My goal was to PR the half and enjoy the full marathon. My training went so well that I ended up getting a PR in both! This January my husband and I are returning to Disney to do the first annual Dopey Challenge. When I take a break from running in the coldest months, I work on strength training to keep in shape and prevent injuries. In the past that has included P90X and Insanity. This year I’m going to try T25.
