Staff:

Garet Cobb began working for the Bedford Times-Mail as photojournalist in September of 1997. He quit smoking in 2007 and took up running, joining a training group in Bedford and eventually competing in the 2009 Indy Mini Marathon. He also competed in the Fort Benjamin Harrison Mini in October of that year. He recently took swimming lessons to "relearn" how to swim and has added a weekly swim at the Indiana University pool to his active life. His fitness goal is to either run or swim five days a week.

Brian Culp grew up in Madison County and went on to get a journalism degree from Franklin College and a Masters in Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. He came to Morgan County and Hoosier Times in 2004 when he moved to Mooresville with his wife, Stephanie, to be closer to her family. Chasing and playing with his two young daughters are his favorite activities. Inline skating is his favorite way to exercise. He likes working on INstride because the stories always give great ideas on new ways to stay in shape and get healthier.

Todd Davidson has been working in digital media at Hoosier Times, Inc. since 1999. When not at the office, he's frequently found on a bike on the fantastic cycling roads in Monroe and surrounding counties. Todd lives in Bloomington with his wife and two children.

An Indiana girl to the core, Kathryn S. Gardiner was born in Muncie where she was raised with her three older brothers and several pets. She received her bachelor's degree in Telecommunications from Ball State University, and earned her master's degree in Screenwriting from Hollins University in Roanoke, Va. She began calling Bloomington home in 2006 and has been involved with INstride from the start. She enjoys the features on local people who have changed their lives through fitness. Away from the office, she spends most of her free time training in boxing, jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai and mixed martial arts.

A California kid for his childhood years, Jeremy Hogan came to The Herald-Times and Indiana in 1997 after a series of newspaper internships that spanned the country: Modesto Bee, Indianapolis News, Kansas City Star, Palm Beach Post and Ann Arbor News. He first picked up a camera as boy to snap pictures of his friends, which lead to a journalism career and, in 1998, a Pulitzer Prize nomination. In 2004, he turned his still-photographer's eye to moving pictures and began shooting, not only news footage for the HeraldTimesOnline.com, but also his own documentary films. His current film project focuses on the Vietnam War veterans who served in his father's Air Cavalry squadron.

Chris Howell has been a photographer at The Herald-Times for the past 12 years and a senior photographer and Pathways photo-columnist for the past four years. Along with his weekly column, he is the beat photographer for Indiana University men's basketball and football, as well as a general assignment photojournalist for the paper. Born and raised in Bloomfield, Chris's passion is documenting the everyday lives of the people in our communities and wherever his travels take him. Away from work, Chris enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing softball, and cooking out in the summertime.

A native of Anderson, Rich Janzaruk began working at The Herald-Times in Bloomington in 2000. A move to The Times-Mail photo department came in 2002 and he still calls Bedford home. He's held the position of photo editor since 2003. A golf enthusiast, his favorite part of snapping photos for INstride is meeting new people.

Carol Johnson grew up in Kokomo, Ind. and has made Bedford home for 25 years with her husband and three teenagers. She started at The Times-Mail as a police beat reporter, and describes writing for INstride as "INspiring ... Many of the people I've met have had to make some drastic lifestyles changes to improve their health and well-being - but they are excited and committed." She's an avid walker, usually with her four rescue dogs as her companions, and started running four years ago. Since then, she's run the Indy mini twice, as well as a few local 5Ks. She also plays tennis, though she jokes that she has a hard time finding a partner who plays as badly as she does.

Originally from Ithaca, N.Y., Stewart Moon came to Indiana and The Herald-Times in 1992 after attending the State University of New York College at Fredonia and working a series of graphic design positions in New York State and Washington, D.C. He's a father of four, with a son at Indiana University, two daughters at Bloomington High School South, and a youngest daughter at Jackson Creek Middle School. Film noir is a free-time passion - both watching and collecting - as are sports. He plays basketball and tunes in for the Australian Football League, Buffalo Bills, Yankees, and European soccer, especially Valencia. He enjoys working on INstride because it promotes healthful lifestyles and provides different graphics play than the daily newspaper.

A lifelong Hoosier, Shaylan Owen grew up near rural Delphi. He was a Lilly Endowment Scholar in 2001 and graduated from Wabash College in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in fine arts, focused on photography. After developing his graphic design skills at a newspaper in Crawfordsville, he made the move to The Herald-Times and hasn't looked back. In seven years as a designer, he won numerous awards, including two for "best designer," and also worked on many special publication and photography projects. He is now the marketing manager for Hoosier Times. Shaylan is a self-described "food nerd;" he creates, prepares and photographs recipes for H&L magazine's "The Untamed Palate." When not working, he enjoys cooking, reading, running and all manner of nerdly things.

Laurie Ragle grew up in Bloomington and graduated from Edgewood High School. She spent 16 years in Dallas, Texas working as a yellow pages sales manager, then on to national sales training, before moving back to Indiana to be with family. She enjoys working on INstride because it helps area businesses target the very types of customers they are hoping to reach. Her own health and wellness lifestyle involves Jazzercise and any exercise she can do with friends because they "keep me motivated." Her favorite saying is, "The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth."

Born and raised in Bloomington, David Snodgress graduated from University High School and completed his schooling with journalism and political science degrees from Indiana University and a masters degree in journalism from Ohio University. He began working in news in 1968 as a sports editor in Greencastle, and then as a photographer in Crawfordsville, a position he still holds as the photography manager at The Herald-Times. He enjoys hiking, camping and canoeing, and though he wouldn't call working out at the gym a "favorite activity," he does feel it's important. He has three children and shares a log home with his wife, a dog, two cats, four hens and a rooster.

A Hoosier native from Winchester, Bob Zaltsberg graduated from Miami University and moved to Bloomington in 1976. He became the editor of The Herald-Times in 1985. He enjoys working closely with his newspaper colleagues on INstride and appreciates the publication's focus on wellness and fitness. He's retired as a runner (after three Indy Minis) and now opts for walking and low-impact machines, especially at the Monroe County YMCA where he's been a member since it opened. He spends the rest of his free time with his wife Susan Williams, their "four mellow cats and three of the best dogs ever."
