Dr. Keith Anderson | Novant Health

We know runners are some of the healthiest folks around Charlotte, as long as they’re eating right and being smart about their training. But race day is something else entirely! Dr. Keith Anderson of Novant Health is the Medical Director for the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon and he joins us on this episode of Running Around Charlotte


Tara Lane | Fox 46

We’ve been blessed with some great weather for our Charlotte marathons, and we want to keep the streak going this year. We’ve brought on just the person to keep us informed, too – Tara Lane is a runner, and a meteorologist for our media sponsor, Fox 46.

Lindsey Fronk & Jessica Osborn | Hemby Children’s Hospital

Hemby Children’s Hospital — located at Novant Presbyterian Medical Center in Charlotte’s Elizabeth neighborhood — is the marathon’s beneficiary. And if you’ve ever had a sick child admitted to the hospital, you’re absolutely grateful for the care they get and want it to be the best possible. We do too. Joining us now to tell us more about how the Charlotte Marathon helps sick children, is Lindsey Fronk and Jessica Osborn from Hemby Children’s Hospital. Thanks for being here.

Joe Gaither | Feetures

If you really want to “sock it to the competition” in the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon this year, you’ll need the right footwear. Not just shoes — but the right socks, too. Feetures socks were created in 2002 with the “sole” focus of being the best performance socks in the world, and they’re made right here in the Carolinas. Joe Gaither from Feetures drops by the podcast to share what makes them so special.
