Meet Angelique Portugues, sales associate at Florida Running Company, who joined the team in 2012.
- Background: Angelique’s running career started sophomore year of high school during a basketball practice. The coach recruited Angie once they started conditioning. A spark lit up the first day of practice that never turned off.
- Favorite part of working at FRC: Working in a running store gives her a chance to try and inspire other first time runners like Angie’s coach helped her.
- Tips for others: Working so near the main running route in Miami is a plus. Angelique recommends that our customers take a stroll down Bayshore Dr. one day out of the week.
- Fun fact: Besides being a dedicated runner, Angie is a very talented artist. She takes her time off to work on beautiful pieces, such as children’s nursery walls.
