Meet Chris Johnson, sales associate at Summit Running Company, who was hired in 2013.
A native of Berkeley Heights, NJ, Chris Johnson started running at Governor Livingston High School where some of his best memories involve beating runners from Summit High School. Chris then attended Colgate University where he discovered the benefits of high mileage, long tempo workouts, and strategically placed tape on wet and rainy days as a collegiate athlete.
Thanks to hard work and a pair of lucky white racing shorts, Chris was a five-time Patriot League Champion, a two-time regional qualifier in outdoor track, and a Division I National Championship Qualifier in cross country. Chris specialized in the 5k (14:05) and 10k (29:37) but every now and threw caution to the wind and entered the shark tank that is the 1 mile run (4:06).
At the Summit Running Company, Chris hopes to draw on his experience to inspire people to achieve their goals and, more importantly, help them look fresh while running.
