Aaron Hewitt, Physician Assistant - Sports Medicine, Cartilage Restoration
“Every day I see people that can’t run. Many of my patients would give a lot for the same opportunities that I have every day. “
Why I love to run: Running is a good stress reliever and a great way for me to relax my mind. And my favorite reason to run - there is no "faking" a good run. Unlike hitting a homerun or nailing a three pointer, you can't go out and run a lucky half marathon. You get what you put in to running. It's just you, the road and the amount of hard work you put in to it.
Favorite place to run around Charlotte: Along the Lynx light rail and through Uptown
Favorite race: Cooper River Bridge Run 10k or Charlotte Turkey Trot 8k
My favorite running tip: Don't "just" run...cross train!
My PUMP UP running song: Not Afraid by Eminem or Enter Sandman by Metallica
