While I love being home with Lilly, I have been keeping my eye out for a low key, low stress part-time job… and I finally found it!! I was in the local running store (obviously), spending more time than necessary talking about running (naturally) and I noticed the “We’re Hiring” sign. I chatted with the manager, and before I knew it I had a part-time job!
I have only worked a couple of shifts at The Greater Boston Running Company, but so far I’m in love! Even though I am not using the Master’s degree in Clinical Psych that I worked so hard to earn, I am truly excited to learn more about running. People say “do what you love,” right? So this me giving it a shot!
At work I get to learn all about running shoes, running gear and talk to runners all day long! THE BEST!
I am currently being trained in how to properly assess a customer’s running style and fit them with the shoe that best meets their needs (i.e. neutral, stability, motion control).
So, I am in the process of learning all of the shoes in the store (see above)- that comes out to about 150 shoes (75 women/ 75 men)! Whoa!! We carry Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, Saucony, Asics and Newton shoes.
Please help me learn all of these shoes!!
Tell me- what shoes do you wear?? Do you like them?
Why do you wear them: do you need more stability, neutral, need more cushion, less cushion, you over-pronate or under-pronate or something else?
