Steven Schindler

THE STORY:

My name is Steven Schindler and I have been in the health and fitness industry for the last 20 years as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor.  I am certified in many different areas such as strength and conditioning, spinning, yoga, karate, nutrition and corrective exercise.  I am always educating myself in new and evolving areas of health and fitness throughout my career.   I have done over 50 different endurance races such as running, triathlons, stair climbs, swimming and obstacles since 2008. Distances of half marathon, olympic triathlon, 2 mile swim, tough mudder, spartan sprint and the empire state building run up, as well as many other distance races.  I remember after my first race in 2008 which was a sprint triathlon.  I looked at my splits and noticed that I ran in the 6 min/mile.  From that day on I realized I could really run fast.  I ran track in high school and was pretty slow then, after years of strength training and conditioning I have become an competitive endurance athlete, finishing top 5 % in most all my running events.  I am on a journey to completing an ironman years down the road and part of that journey is running a marathon.  Human performance and endurance takes time to build over years of dedication and discipline.  I have completed a few half marathons at a PR time of 1 hr and 27 min.  As this has become my 7th year of racing I feel I am ready to take on one of the most historical and exciting races in the world, The New York City Marathon. 

            I met Brad Berman when my daughter Riley was in nursery school with his son Noah at the Westchester Jewish Center.  Whenever we would meet our conversations always involved our love for running.  What race did you do? What race are you doing? The last time I saw Brad was at the Sprint to Flint in June 2013.  He looked fit and ready to run.  The whole family was there.  He said he was training for the NYC marathon in 2013.  I was excited for him. 

            As time went on my daughter went to a different school and I didn’t see Brad.   A few months later I was teaching yoga in Larchmont NYSC and saw his wife Jessica running on the treadmill.  She informed me about what had happened to Brad.  He had a stroke (from an AVM) before going out for a training run.  I was really devastated.  Such a happy, nice, friendly athletic individual such as Brad. I was upset!! Not Fair! Why bad things happen to good people, we will never know.

            I quickly got on the Brad Update email list and saw his video of his surgical and emotional progress.  He is an amazing individual.  I am extremely proud to know him.  I would be honored to run in the NYC marathon in 2014 in the Run4Brad campaign raising money for the the lower limb robotics clinic at Burke Rehabilitation Center.
