Mentor Profile: Steven


I love reading about why other people run.  Their favorites, their struggles, their habits, their memories, their emotions, all tied to the sport. That’s why I started to ask questions and create blog posts about other runners. Steven’s profile hits all the highs and lows and awesome memories of his races and his interactions with other runners. I laughed the whole way through it, shaking my head at times, and read with awe the sheer number of races he has done.  It’s fitting that I publish this today, the day of his 39th marathon!

Steven mentors currently for the PR Squad and also at Fleet Feet Wade Avenue.

Mentor Profile: Charles

Charles can be found in running shoes, on a bike, in the pool.  He can be found at Fleet Feet North Raleigh or with the PR Squad. You might find him making donuts on a track, or you might see him having a fun run with his son, Thomas, who has also trained with Fleet Feet.  If you are lucky enough to share runs with Charles, you know he’s a great cheerleader and mentor, full of help and knowledge.

Read on for more about Charles.

OOFOS sandals for my marathon! OMG!

Disclaimer:  I received a pair of OOFOS Project Pink Sport Sandals to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!”

As I’m currently involved in a campaign to promote the OOFOS Project Pink Sport Sandal, I was researching about the company on the OOFOS website, and then . . .  I. Saw. These.

OOFOS sandals with Marine Corps Marathon branding!

Marine Corps Marathon 2019 OOFOS sandals. OMG OOFOS.  You see, I always get a marathon souvenir (or two or three) for myself as a treat for all the training I did in preparation for 26.2 miles, all in one shot.  Don’t you?

And of course, I love OOFOS.

And I wear OOFOS as often as I can.

What better way to be comfy AND to commemorate another trip around Washington, DC on foot this October?

So I treated myself, this time over a month ahead of time.

Which is actually awesome, because it will be like a little happy hour leading up to race day every time I wear them.  A celebration of the work I’m putting in.

They come in the slide model, too.

My friends, if you are running Chicago or New York, they have them for those races, too! And I see some sizes are already sold out, so I wouldn’t hesitate if you are at all interested.
