Houston Running Podiatrist | New Runner training


“To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”  – Walt Disney on Opening Day of Disneyland 1955

Dreams and inspiration resonates with me…now more than ever! My name is Dr. Andrew Schneider and I welcome you! This website is a start in a journey for me…a journey of health and fitness and a journey of mind over matter. I am very happy that you are a part of it!

SDC12179I am a lifelong Disney fan. Growing up, my family made countless visits to Walt Disney World in Orlando and, to this day, I can’t get enough. Walt Disney created a magical land where anything is possible and dreams come true. Over the years, my family and I have visited both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Together and I have taken each of my children individually for a special bonding trip.

I am apodiatrist in private practice in Houston, TX. My practice, Tanglewood Foot Specialists, and I have become known as one of the go-to practices for elite runners and triathletes in our area. For 14 years I have treated recreational and professional athletes, including marathon runners, ultra-marathon runners, and Ironman triathletes. They trust me to understand their injuries, provide them relief, and enable them to keep running with little or no downtime.

Now I’m planning on joining them…My goal is to run one of the RunDisney races in 2013. My initial goal is a half-marathon, but just running one of the events, from 5K to marathon, will meet my goals.

Thinking back to Walt’s words….inspiration and dreams. I am inspired by my patients, but most of my inspiration comes from my wife who is a serious runner and triathlete. I am also inspired by the dreamers, especially my children.

Keep your eye on this site, subscribe to the feed, and follow me as i am sure to encounter some roadblocks along the way. I’ll need your encouragement along the way. I’m looking forward to this journey and hope you will take it with me!
