Why were you drawn to working at running central? I love the atmosphere. The people there are helpful, fun, and just great to be around.

What do you like most about working at running central? I love the people, and I enjoy what we do. I honestly love going to work and I think a big part of that is because our customers are great, and so is our team.

What do you like to do outside of Running Central? I started running my freshmen year in high school and loved it. I am now planning on going to Monmouth College to run cross country and track for them next year. My current goals are to be the best that I can be, and to inspire others to get out and do something that they love to stay active whether that may be, running, walking, jumping rope, dancing, skipping, anything that gets them going.

Start Date: January 11, 2017

Current Shoe of Choice: New Balance is currently my favorite brand, but I am running in a 361 right now for the first time and so far it is pretty great!
