Jamie Davis


Jamie joins the Charlotte Running Company after a successful career in finance. He, Beth, Meredith and Brady, have lived in Charlotte for 14 years. When he's not at the store, you'll likely find him swimming, biking, or running to get ready for his next triathlon.

A lifelong athlete in team sports, Jamie took up running shortly after his daughter was born. Within a year, he completed his first marathon. Shortly after moving to Charlotte, he turned his focus to triathlon training. He's completed over 25 triathlons, 5 marathons, and 5 half Ironman races. His proudest race achievement is finishing Ironman Florida under 12 hours.

Jamie believes whether you're just getting started or always in training, the proper fitting shoe equals better performance and injury prevention. Jamie looks forward to sharing his passion with you and seeing you at the Northlake or Lake Norman locations to help with all your running and walking essentials.

Alex Hazan

I grew up in Suwanee, Georgia, but I didn&rsquot start running until I moved to Matthews in 2009. My baseball coach picked me out on the base paths and told me I should pick up running, and the rest is history. My favorite running shoe would have to be the Asics Dynaflyte, for its light profile yet great cushion. I race from the 800 in track to the 8k in cross country, but my favorite races would have to be 3000m or the 5000m. My goal this year is to find a way to contribute to bringing an Atlantic 10 championship to the cross country or track programs at Davidson College.


In order to find motivation in the daily grind of training, I think of the quote I heard from coach Renny Waldron at Davidson and popularized by Joel Embiid:

"Trust the Process."

Favorite shoe is the Altra Superior 
Favorite race is any I get to cross the finish line

Favorite quote: "In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity" - Albert Einstein 
Running to me is as human as it gets. You are out in nature, battling the elements, not worrying about anything but ensuring that you meet your body's demands to get where it needs to go as safely, and as quickly, as possible. Something I feel like has been lost in our society.
