I really enjoy staying active and living a healthy lifestyle. Adam has a vision to better the community and I wanted to be part of that vision. Plus, working at Running Central gives me the opportunity to meet some really great people and no excuses to not run! I like being able to come to work and meet some really great customers. It is like a family here! I love having the relationship that I have with my fellow team members and the customers that have become really great friends.
I stay active by running and swimming. When I’m not training for a race I run about 15-20 miles a week and swim 2-3 times a week for at least 1 mile. When I start training for races, I have a training program from F.A.S.T. and that will range from 20-25 to 40 miles a week. I started “real” running when I started working at Running Central. I was a late bloomer.
I have achieved all the goals that I wanted to do with distance, now I’m working with getting under 2:00 half marathon and 4:30 marathon. I have been so close to my goal at the half marathon so it will be nice to get that this year. I know that I really enjoy half marathons so I will stick with that distance.
