Rogers Townsend & Thomas attorneys Trey Turner and Roy Shelley helped organize the Palmetto TRAC Club, an umbrella support group for Triathletes, Runners, and Cyclists ("TRAC") in South Carolina, to provide a forum for sharing information on running groups, places to workout in the area, training groups, and other items of interest, with a goal of increasing health and fitness for everyone.

We will be holding periodic socials to network and share information. Our first social was held August 2d and Dr. Rick McCain, an orthopedist, gave us information in diagnosing, treating, and preventing common running, cycling, and swimming injuries. Two photos of that event are attached.

This year, USC’s law school included an optional morning “wellness hour” as part of New Student Orientation, to let our newest law students know that it’s important to stay healthy and balanced as they start on what we all know is a demanding academic experience.  Here, SC Bar Wellness Committee member Stephanie Nye, USC Law Director of Externships, and 3L students Robbin Wilder and Demetrius Pyburn prepare to lead 1Ls on a downtown Columbia run.  Other wellness options included a State House Power Walk with Bob Bockman, guided meditation led by Kerry Egan, an orientation to “The Strom” with Alex Ruskell, USC Law Director of Academic Success, and yoga with Tina Cundari.

It was taken after a 5mi run, very early in the morning. I am training for the Ray Tanner 12k and the Star Wars: Dark Side half marathon at Disney.
