Todd’s First Ironman

todd-stabenow-photoA good friend, Todd Stabenow, is participating in his first Ironman (Chattanooga) this year and raising money for a great cause.   I’m supporting him not only because of our friendship, he is also putting up a $1,500 4-night stay in Charleston to one lucky winner.

Every $30 donation gives you an entry where you have no worse than a 1/100 chance of winning a stay Sept-May in this beautiful Charleston home.

You can make an easy tax-free donation through the following link:

Go Todd!

Happy National Running Day!


Today is National Running Day June 5, 2013

National Running Day is celebrating its fifth anniversary, and I encourage you to invite a friend or organize a group run to support running.

This morning starting from the Dowd YMCA, I was joined by Chad and Danielle Crockford, Bill Shires and Hanna who just moved to Charlotte, NC from Arizona. We started at 6am and enjoyed 8 miles together through the beautiful streets of Charlotte.

Let me know how you plan on celebrating today.

Cooper River Bridge Run

I just landed in Denver Colorado. Over the next 3 days I will be teaming up with two other great snowboarders from Charlotte, NC and one from Colorado; we will be riding Steamboat Monday and Tuesday [Pictures Soon]. This will also be my last snowboarding trip of the season; spring training is coming up 🙂

When I return, I will be joining my wife Adrienne, in training for Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston SC on March 28th. This will be her first 10k, just a tad longer then a 4 miler, which she enjoys doing. Here is a copy of her program for anyone interested, 10-K Training

During the months of January & February, I scaled my running back to 10-14 miles per week. Gym work has consisted of 4 workouts per week, mostly free weights- involving heavy core work. During my last few runs, my body has felt refreshed and strong.

Off to the mountains…
