Carrboro Run Club

David Brown

Where are you from, and what brought you to the area?  I am originally from Raleigh. I’ve left the area several times over the years to live and work in other places but always returned to the Triangle. My family moved to Chapel Hill in 2008 after separating from working with USAID.

Why do you run?  For sanity. It is my head candy; keeps me balanced and from becoming too unhinged. Everywhere I’ve lived I sought out the community of other runners. 

Why did you decide to join Carrboro Run Club, how long have you been running with us, and what keeps you coming back?  I think I’ve been running with the club from close to the start at Fleet Feet where a charismatic young running evangelist named Steph gained a loyal following that has followed her to several locations.  

Tell us about your best/worst/weirdest running moment:  

Best - everyday that I’m able to step out my door and run without fear.

Worst - making a wrong turn on a course and realizing everyone behind was following!

Weirdest - running through a couple of traffic cones placed in the street at a military checkpoint and being chased and challenged by unhappy guards who felt I disrespected their post. 

If you could have any talent or skill in the entire world, without needing to practice and money was no limitation, what would it be?  The oratory power of the great leaders. 


If you could eat only one meal or food for the rest of your life, what would it be?  The large seafood combination plater with sweet tea and hushpuppies from Hoskins

Restaurant in North Myrtle Beach, SC.

What is something you want people to know about you?  Running has saved my life by helping me overcome depression and unhealthy behaviors of young adulthood.

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  Wrote letters to members of the Carrboro City Council supporting extension of a greenway along Bolin Creek from Umstead Park through Carolina North to link nearby schools to the town’s greenway system.

Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

You're the only Ten I See - covid winter getaway.

Grandfather Mountain

A little covid getaway in the mountains of NC!

Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo, Japan

The Pint Cup tried to be mature while watching scantily clad men wrestle one another.

Fort Raleigh Triathlon, NC

First triathlon after bringing a new life into this world (Allison had a baby, Derek helped a little..) = giant achievement that should not go unnoticed!

Virginia Beach, VA

A nice post-hurricane Dorian visit to VA beach. Beaches are more pleasant when there isn't a hurricane pummeling the shore.

Virginia Beach Half Marathon

At it again - Tom and Kristen returned to VA beach to kill it in the half marathon!

Schooner Mercantile, Camden, Maine

Ahoy from aboard the Schooner Mercantile! The Pint Cup swabbed the deck, walked the plank, and went swimming in freezing cold Atlantic Maine waters.

Raleigh, NC

The Pint Cup attended a Galloway training session with Tom in Raleigh! Go little pint cup, go!

Ultimate Frisbee, Maryland

The pint cup does enjoy sports other than running (sometimes). This time around it enjoyed an invigorating game of ultimate frisbee at the Maryland Discovery Sports Center with Kim.
