About Running Shorts

Hi, I'm Eddie Wooten, and I've written about running in the Triad for more than a decade. Welcome to the new Running Shorts, which you can find at RunningShorts.org. I look forward to talking to and featuring you, seeing you at group runs and races and just reconnecting. It's been a while, hasn't it?

Got a tip or a story idea? I'd love to hear it. Email eddiewooten@gmail.com.
