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 genuine way.
Favorite place to run in Ohio? I don’t have a specific favorite. I really enjoy trying out new trails. Central Ohio has some great ones!
Favorite running shoe & why? I love the Hoka Bondi. They give me great support while still being really cushy. After a marathon, I feel like my recovery time is a lot less.
Fun fact: I lived in London, England when I was 4 – 6 years old and went to an all-girls English school. We had to ride the subway to and from school, which I did with my two older sisters (7 and 9), and we did this by ourselves. That would never happen today!
Favorite post-run treat: I should say something healthy like low fat chocolate milk (which I do love), but my real answer is either ice cream or, if it’s a marathon, a Five Guys burger and fries!
Lisa Dillahunt as told by Hannah Hartzell: There’s this terribly confusing staff joke about Lisa’s name being Linda. I’m still not entirely sure her name is truly Lisa, but I do know that she is such an incredibly kind person! Lisa has a heart for others and is also a great person to have around when you’re taking photos with sparklers and need someone to prevent a forest fire. You rock, Lisa!
