Oak Creek Manager

Favorite brand: Oiselle and Nike
Favorite distance: Quarter Marathon and 10K. The 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon was so emotional, not only was I running at Disney, which was an experience in itself, but I had found my passion for running again.
Ultimate goal: Right now I’m striving for PRs in 5K to the Half and have made a bucket list of Half Marathons I want to run.
What running means to you / why is it important in your life: Running has been a part of my life since I was 13. I believe running is about personal growth – both on and off the course. I became more confident, outgoing, compassionate, and driven because of running.
What you love about specialty running stores:  The community! Getting to know each customer – their experiences and goals – really makes for a personalized experience. Plus store events are the perfect way to meet like minded people, try out new gear, and most of all have fun running.
Greatest running achievement: Getting my husband, a self proclaimed non athlete, running. In June 2015 he ran his first 5K. Now he runs a race a month (or more) with me.
