Mark Lawrence has completed dozens of events marathon distance and longer. In 2005, he qualified and ran my first Boston Marathon. Later that year, he and his son became the top two finishers from Frederick County in the JFK 50. However, by 2006, knee injuries started to occur which led Mark to Chi Running to attempt to avoid knee reconstructive surgery. After retraining himself to run using Chi Running form, Mark began to share the joy of running as President of the Frederick Steeplechasers running. During the five years that mark was President, the club quadrupled in membership!
Since becoming a certified Chi Running instructor from the master himself, Danny Dreyer, Mark has worked with people who have achieved some astonishing results. Some have overcome chronic injuries. Others have broken through significant time barriers, but everyone has reported feeling more comfortable in their practice of running.
Mark’s hope is to, “…educate people to take a more thoughtful approach toward maintaining their ability to “SELF-PROPEL” so we can all keep moving forward for the rest of our lives. And who knows? If you learn to run efficiently and without pain, you may end up loving to run as much as I do!”

Dave Griffin began running in 1976 as a high school freshman. He ran competitively through 1989 with PRs that include a 25:43 5-mile, a 32:11 10K and a 1:12:24 half marathon. In 1986, much the medial meniscus was removed from his right knee during surgery to repair a non-running injury. The doctor advised Dave to stop running, warning that he would get arthritis if he continued. He returned to running and racing after the surgery, running some of his best races in 1987-89.
After a 12-year period of casual running when his children were young, Dave returned to competitive running as a master. His aspirations were derailed when the doctor’s warning came true in 2005, and Dave developed arthritis in his right knee. The years since have been riddled with injury, including a stress fracture in his right medial condyle while training for the 2012 Boston Marathon.
Dave started the Flying Feet Running Programs in 2004 while his daughter, Katie, was running in high school. The program has since grown to provide year-round coaching and support to runners of all experience and talent levels in the Carroll County, Maryland area.
Dave begin writing about running and life in 2006, when his bi-weekly column, Dave Griffin on Running, was introduced. In 2010, Dave published his first book, After the Last PR – The Virtues of Living a Runner’s Life. His second book, In the Distance: Why we struggle through the demands of running, and how it leads us to peace was published in 2015.
Steve Moore is the owner and operator of Run Moore, a running shoe store in Westminster, MD. Steve is an avid runner who is a member of both the Westminster Road Runners Club and Flying Feet. He was a college runner for a local school and still tries to compete in races from the mile to the marathon when he can. After bemoaning the idea of needing new running shoes and having to make the drive to a neighboring city just to get a good pair of shoes and speak with a sales rep who knew running, he starting thinking how crazy it was that there was not something local. With that, Run Moore was born. He had never owned his own business and while he did have sales background, he did not have a sports sales background. What he has is 20 years of running and a passion for running. Steve feels the lessons he has learned through running have shaped who he is today. Joining his high school cross country team led him to who he is today and the idea of helping hopefully grow the sport in Westminster is very exciting. He and his wife are big supporters of Westminster and Carroll County and want to make Run Moore the place for runners.
