Christiana is no longer a student (yay!) but studied Exercise Science in college and loves to use that knowledge when helping customers with their fit! She has worked at JackRabbit for two months with her favorite running spot being a short distance away in Central Park! When not running in the park, she would love to run the 18 M Run at Long Beach Island NJ. Her favorite item to help customers with is insoles and socks because both can be under-rated, but make a HUGE difference!

Weekly Group Runs
Every Tuesday at 6:30pm, Diego leads a free group run from the store. Each week the run is something new and different that embraces a new aspect of running. The group does a short to medium paced run through Central Park with dynamic strength building exercises and various temp paces. The runners are typically joined by special guests from various brands. They are also joined weekly by the Latinos Run!
