I was drawn to this store, one, because running is something I am passionate about, and two, because of the atmosphere. I was a customer at Running Central for a few years before I worked here. I was always excited to go get shoes or whatever it was that I needed because I just loved being in the store. I always thought that the people were so helpful and made the experience amazing.
What I like most about working at Running Central so far is being able to do a job I like with people that I like. The atmosphere that drew me to the store is still present, and it makes me excited to work. The customers and employees are just great. My coworkers have also been very helpful whenever I need anything. It has just been a wonderful experience.
I stay active by training and racing. I’ll be a student-athlete at Illinois Wesleyan University in cross country and track starting soon, and that will really keep me active. I also like to ride my bike, play basketball, and just be outside. I hope to be active for the rest of my life. Physical activity is a big part of my life now, and I enjoy being up on my feet and moving.
