What is favourite aspect of working at The Running Centre?  I love talking to the varying types of people who come into TRC, about the things that are important to them.  We don’t just see runners and triathletes in the store, we see obstacle enthusiasts, cross fitters, mountain climbers, dog walkers, grandmas, granddads, all types of people generally doing the things they love, all sharing the ultimate goal of health & fitness.  It is certainly inspiring, and great to see that there are so many everyday people, doing extraordinary things!
