Why CRC? They allow me to “live the dream.”  Seriously, in my many years of working, this has by far been the most fun job that I have had.  I love how CRC is not just another run specialty store.  In my job I have the opportunity to tell the CRC story, and it is a great one to tell!  Their passion for supporting the community was and continues to be a big draw for me.  Also, I love the energy of the staff.  They are fun to work with and fun to watch as they interact with customers in a...

Megan with U.S. Olympian Andrew Wheating Why CRC? I love working at CRC because I get to hang out with people as awesome as Matt DeLeon. But beyond that, what drew me to CRC is the encouraging attitude the staff has about making everybody’s next run even better than the last. I wanted to feel like I was part of a running community when I moved to Columbus, and being at CRC feels like that all the time. Favorite place to run in Ohio? My favorite place to run is the Mohican area. While the trails there are great, the country roads...

Why CRC? Because running (or walking, or whatever floats your boat exercise-wise) is good–and, no matter how small the day-to-day impact of one exerciser might be, spreading that around makes the world a better place.  Slowly but surely. I also have four cats to feed, so I gotsta get paid! Where’s your favorite place to run in Ohio:  My favorite place to run is Friendship Park in Gahanna.  It’s a very small park–only about a quarter mile trail–but is densely populated with Pokestops, so that’s important. But for actual running there is a route in Granville that we named “Gunrack”...

Why CRC? Because of Craig Ferguson.  I also like working here because runners tend to be relaxed and happy people and I like to help them enjoy running. Favorite place to run in Ohio? The ancient trail at Darby Creek Metro Park  Favorite running shoe & why?  The Hoka Bondi because it’s a minimal shoe with maximum cushion.  It lets me run further. Fun fact? I use video games as running motivation. For every one hour of gaming, I run at least one  mile. Favorite post-run treat? A cold glass of milk
