Lee Davis A Successful Runner Among Other Things

Enthusiastic Attorney Had Outstanding Times In His Day

Thursday, September 18, 2014 - by John Hunt

Lee Davis grew up in Philadelphia, went to college at Elizabethton College in Central Pennsylvania and graduated from law school at Boston University.

He also became a pretty good runner during that time.

Davis is a high-profile attorney in Chattanooga who does something physical every day.  He doesn’t train like he once did and he doesn’t even like to talk about his times from earlier days, but he more than held his own on the road.

For the record, Lee has run under 32 minutes for the 10K and he’s gone sub-2:40 twice in marathons and he’s also broken 15 minutes twice in 5K races.  Those numbers speak for themselves about what kind of speed he had.

He and his wife Heather Ott met while she was going to graduate school at Middlebury College in Vermont.  They later moved to Chattanooga where they had an outside wedding on Raccoon Mountain in January 1993.
