FRC Ambassadors

Meet the 2020 FRC Ambassadors


Tom Adams

In December 2018, I was looking for a new pair of shoes and stumbled across the Fleet Feet website. I got some new shoes and got info about FRC. This had been the second time I had heard of the club so I just knew it had to be kismet, I must seek them out and run. I showed up that Sunday and have been hooked ever since! The support and knowledge that gets shared, the insight that our mega-super star runners share, the constant encouragement has been one of the best experiences in my running career. I have learned over my years of running that I am a social runner, I am happy and more motivated to run with a group of folks than by myself, a bit like social drinking but way more fun!


Maritza McAulay

I grew up in Los Angeles, CA. I went to school at Cal State LA – BA in Social Work, met my husband there, and California is also where I discovered my love of running. My husband’s job in the Army brought us to Fayetteville in 2018. I’ve been running since I was 12 years old, when my middle school PE teacher noticed that I ran well and seemed to really enjoy it. I ran track and cross country at Los Angeles Trade Tech College and transferred to California State University of Los Angeles, where I was able to compete on a full athletic scholarship. Running has definitely changed my life for the better, as well as helped me to emerge stronger through some of its rougher patches. It has always given me hope and helped me learn that I had to work hard to achieve my goals and dreams. I love to motivate and encourage others to pursue their life and fitness goals. I’m excited to be a part of this amazing running club because everyone is so positive and kind to me. I feel welcome and supported at FRC, and for that I am grateful.


Stacey Brown

In 1979 I was born at Virginia Beach General Hospital. In 2001, I became a Licensed Practical Nurse. I have two kids and am the wife of a 20 year 82nd Airborne Army veteran. A few years ago, I knew running would be a way to stay healthy and keep our family active together while also meeting others that shared a common interest. After hearing my daughter tell me repeatedly “Mom you really need to join the FAYETTEVILLE running club” she kept hearing about. I finally decided to join, and attended a meetup. I remember being so nervous and was afraid of being judged because I’m not the fastest runner I just run my own race. But none of that is what I experienced! Not only was everyone inspiring and informative but the camaraderie and kindness the entire club generates was immense. It’s like no other run club that I’ve ever heard or been a part of before. I am honored and excited to be able to share this amazing club with others in hopes that this too can inspire others to level up and come out of their comfort zone to meet their goals with an amazing group behind them to inspire and push them along the way.

Jamaal Dunham

Hello, my name is Jamaal Dunham! I have many roles in life from Father, Husband, Friend, Notary, Principal, Pastor, Life Strategist but one that is dear to me is a Fayetteville Running Club (FRC), Member. Before joining FRC and making them family, I didn't like to run and didn't run until I knew that I wanted to improve my health. Once I joined I quickly found out that we do things together. My love for running grew from the caring nature of my running club family. I want to share with others to encourage all to run and do things they never thought they could. So I say, Start somewhere, why not with the Fayetteville Running Club Today? Join us soon! ;


Beth Ketterman

The reason I Love FRC is because everyone in the group is the most caring respectful people I know. FRC taught me everything I need to know about running and life. They have taught me how to prevent injuries and how to prepare for races. FRC has taught me to have good sportsmanship and always care for others. They’ve taught me how to run fast and how to eat healthy. I love FRC because there is always someone you can talk to if anything is going on in your life or if you just feel like talking. Another reason I love FRC is that you’ll never feel left out. FRC makes it feel more like a family than a group. The reason I want to share FRC with others is because I feel like they will enjoy this club and all the crazy things we do and also make new friends. So come on out and join our family and let us make you feel welcome every step of your run.


David Resnick

When I arrived in Fayetteville, I came here alone and knew no one. Running has been something I've always loved, so when I found the Fayetteville Running Club, I immediately knew I'd join. Within just the past 2 years, FRC has become more than just a club. For me, it has become my family here. It is my best friends, the people I'd rather be around more than any other and people with the passion, spirit, and beautifully kind hearts that I always needed to find. Through good times and tough times, I knew I was just so thankful for these people. We continually help and motivate each other, whether it's just to get out on a short run, to run a dream race, or to go run a 100 mile doesn't matter what it is, we support one another and will always be there for our fellow runners and our community.
