Eric Smith – Charlotte Running Club



Charlotte Running Club is a powerful force behind running and encouragement in Charlotte.. and for the first time in 2-1/2 years, it has a new President. Eric Smith is a committed runner who is eager to encourage others, and has also been described as a “rock star” pace runner for our Novant Health Charlotte Marathon.

With the Charlotte Marathon (and others) transitioned to virtual runs this year, he is literally “Running Around Charlotte” for his races. Eric joins us now to talk about his upcoming races and his new post.


Christine Turner



Here’s a question we all need to hear: “How will you get moving today?” It’s a favorite question of our next guest on Running Around Charlotte. Christine Turner is a former college soccer player and now mother of 2, who trained as a mental health counselor, and is currently as a personal trainer at a company she started about 2 years ago. And as if she’s not busy enough — she also runs. Wow! We’re glad she’s here talking to us today… maybe she can share some of her energy!
