Why were you drawn to working at Running Central? I started working at Running Central at the beginning of 2014.  I have been a customer of RC for many years.  I was drawn to the enthusiasm and passion that a customer feels when you walk through the door of RC.  The encouragement my family and I have received over the last 5 years have made me want to give back to the running community.

What do you like doing outside of Running Central? My husband and I started running 5 years ago with the intend of running ONE half marathon,(Illini half marathon) but we caught the bug and have been running ever since. Twelve half marathons later, we will run our first marathon in Champaign, Il., where it all began. We help with the River City Training Group as cheerleaders and I love to cook for hungry runners!!  Running has truly become a family passion!
