Meet the Team

Steve and Bec Rosel, Owners –  The Running Company – Lilydale
WE LOVE RUNNING!

Steve and Bec having grown up and lived in the Lilydale area for years!

Running came around for Bec with a run to the milk bar and back – roughly 3km – in a pair of jeans, a raincoat, and an old pair of runners that had never actually been used for running!

A attempt at 27 years of age to perhaps become a runner?!

Two knee reconstructions…why not right?!

It got Bec good – hook, line, and sinker! Before she knew it she was running several times a week, extending the duration, running faster, and running further.

For Steve – it was chasing BEC!!!

Both fell in love with (with each other and running) so much that they earned their accredited coaching pass and set up their own running squad in Lilydale called “Generation Run” and if you live in the area or even walk around the lake, there’s a fair chance you’ve seen them, with over 150 members of the squad, it’s hard to miss!

With Steve and Bec both having completed numerous road and trail half, full and ultra marathons and Steve having over 8 years experience in both footwear wholesale and retail, they’re the perfect pair to help the amazing people in the Lilydale area get moving and keep moving!

1. Favourite run
Bec:

The Great Train Race – racing the iconic Puffing Billy Steam-train in the scenic Dandenong Ranges.

Steve:

Two Bays Trail Run on the stunning coastal trails between Cape Schanck and Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula.

2. Best Running Moment
Bec:

Ending a long run at the beautiful township of Warburton, then plunging into the crystal clear icy waters of the Yarra River.

Steve:

Running in random locations around the world. Top of the list – Round Rarotonga Road Race – 31kms around the largest of the Cook Islands in tropical paradise.

3. What do you love about running?
Bec:

It makes me feel like me…

Steve:

The challenge, the community, the camaraderie, and that elation of reaching a goal.

One of our TRC Lilydale shoe experts @mikerun2020 has done some km’s during lock down in the new Salomon Wildcross. Lucky for Mike he lives next door to the trails of Mount Dandenong.

Read his current review after a few weeks in the Wildcross.

Saloman’s latest Wild Cross, IMO is a cracking trail shoe.

The ride (midsole more importantly) is cushioned enough to run on the hard, compact trails such as those found at Lillydale Lake and the major tracks through the Dandenong Ranges. While the multi-directional lugs under foot have handled all that my 5km radius surrounds (and nature) have thrown at me: road (fine for short distances), slippery pebbles, obtrusive & sharp rocks, old school mud & puddles, greasy red & yellow clays, boggy grass, fallen trees. All comfortably dealt with.

Without trying to compare, while they are slightly heavier than my other trail shoes (290g vs 270g, US9.5 M), they more than make up for it when considering how much less energy is “wasted” climbing steep, slippery ascents and being able to attack any descent with speed and reckless abandonment.

The roomy toe-box is great too, and seeing as I have a narrow foot those with wider feet will no doubt welcome this. The upper breathes ok, but will keep your toots dryer than many other models on the market. Will know more once I can go out for several hours.

Quick lacing system…. Hhmmm??? Good post run when shoes are caked on with mud and hands are freezing, but found I still had to pull from the bottom up to ensure snug feet at the toe.

No running shoe is "perfect" and there's always a bit of Robbing Peter to pay Paul, but
I feel that the team at Saloman have got the balance right across the various components & considerations that go into a great trail shoe. They're light, with ample cushioning and responsiveness. Keep your feet "dry" while allowing them to breathe and an aggressive enough outer to tackle technical trails while suitable enough to run on harder, flatter surfaces (though I would suggest avoiding roads as much as possible and limiting exposure to hard, flat walking tracks)

So excited for the day that I can go on a long run in these (very good) bad boys!
