I arrived back in Charlotte at 5 p.m. yesterday and hit the ground running. I Ubered home from the airport (obsessed with Uber…) and was changed and on my yoga mat by 6 p.m. I got in 45 minutes of stretch before heading out for a girl’s night.
My 4:55 a.m. alarm was a rather rude awakening after 5 days of sleeping until 8 or 9 a.m. I trained two clients before heading Uptown for a radio appearance.
I was invited to be a guest on our local NPR affiliate for the Charlotte Talks show. Charlotte Talks is hosted by Mike Collins and discusses a different topic relevant to our region every day. Think politics, arts, social issues, human interest, environment and everything in between.
I am an avid NPR listener and it’s how I get most of my news. I always have it on in the car and tune into this show regularly so it was really cool to be invited to participate in it and to meet Mike.
I joined these two guys to talk about all things running. This is Dr. Doug Bradberry, Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, and Nathan Leehman, owner of The Ultra Running Company.
I was there as a representative of Run Charlotte Run as well as to be the resident yoga and fitness guru. I made sure to hammer in the importance of strength training and mobility! 😉
You can listen to the whole show on the WFAE website.
