Morning shows are the fastest-growing segment of the TV News day, and how you draw viewers in for news, traffic, and weather as they wake up, has a big effect on if they come back at other times of the day.A few years back, Fox 46 jumped into the crowded Charlotte TV market and made a big name for themselves not only with content of their morning newscasts.. but the personalities as well. And we have two of them with us here right now on the Running Around Charlotte podcast… Page Fehling and Jason Harper of Good Day Charlotte.
Runners have a special camaraderie – the kind you develop by sweating out the details and doing the hard training to reach your goals. Our U.S. military men and women are the same – building bonds with each other through missions that serve our country and keep our allies safe around the world. Albemarle Foundation supports our military men and women, and are showing it in a unique way during the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. The foundation is sponsoring the Half-marathon Rucking Division. It’s just one way Albemarle Foundation is “Growing the Good” at the marathon, and Sandra Holub from the foundation joins us on Running Around Charlotte to tell us more about what that means.
Casey Cline is a runner, artist, designer and coach. As a Novant Charlotte Marathon Ambassador, she motivates runners every day. Let’s get to know Casey a little better – and how all the parts of her life “Fit” together.
Every marathon needs runners, right? And nothing encourages runners in their pursuits like… other runners. Seriously, running is more fun with a buddy. That is the whole idea behind the Charlotte Running Club, now nearly 500 runners strong. Chad Champion is their president and joins us for a little Running Around Charlotte.
We all know running burns a lot of fuel, and you’ve got to feed your engine if you’re going to train for.. and run.. a marathon. We’ve all heard this before, but we could use some last-minute tips before our race just to make sure we’re on the right track, right? Well we’ve got ’em…. and we know where to buy what you need, too. Say hello to Kimberly Reynolds, of Publix Super Markets. Publix is a Novant Health Charlotte Marathon sponsor, and also a great place to load up on those foods you need to fuel your race.
No matter how fast or slow or far you run, you’re surrounded by plenty of opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the world around you. Seasons change, the weather does, too… and even the very same route you run every day can seem all new. Some of us are better witness to this than others. Our guest here on the Running Around Charlotte Podcast is Bryan “Hojo” Hojnacki. He’s a long time Novant Health Charlotte Marathon pace team leader — and let’s just say he’s quite a collector of things, too.
We’ve all heard the saying – a picture is worth a thousand words. Our next guest tells stories that move – with video and photography. You’ve seen The Littlefield Co’s work on the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. Now let’s talk to man behind the brand, Duncan Littlefield.
If you’re active in Charlotte, chances are you’ve run into our next guest. This Charlotte native is a dad, a runner, speaks four languages AND is the defending relay champion at the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. He’s trained and motivated countless runners through his company Moore Moves. Darius Moore joins us for this episode of Running Around Charlotte!
