General Manager of A Runner’s Mind

Started at ARM: September 2016
Favorite Bay Area Race: Since I just moved to CA and have only run one race I’ll have to say the Half Moon Bay International Marathon/Half Marathon (I ran the half). I suspect by the end of November though I will have a new favorite…ARM’s Gobble Wobble!
Shoe of choice on race day: Hoka One One Bondi (road), Saucony Peregrine (trail)
Why run? Running, for me, is the absolute best way to meet people and to learn their stories. It is the most natural and comfortable way for me to get to know someone. Over 37 years of running and racing, my most satisfying and memorable runs have been those done with someone else. The best is running with someone, sharing my passion for running with them and encouraging them to keep working towards their own goals.
Why ARM? ARM=Family. Every customer who walks through the door is greeted like a long lost cousin and given extra special service. ARM staff all lead active lifestyles and strive to share their passion for movement with every customer. Each ARM staffer cares deeply about making sure every customer has what they need to pursue their own active lifestyle whether it’s new running shoes, advice on race day nutrition, friends to walk or run with from the store in the evenings, Zumba class or simply some encouragement to get out the door on a day they’d rather not. ARM is the most special of run specialty stores!
Running accessory you can’t run without: A sturdy hair tie plus an an emergency spare (for me or to share)
