Why running is the best gift my kids have given me

I love a good origin story. How superheroes became super is more interesting to me than what they do with those powers.

Moving with intention

Not long ago my husband asked my daughters to clean their rooms. There was a fair bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Not because they hate cleaning their room, although that is true. They were upset because it was Monday. They clean their rooms on Tuesdays, they exclaimed. It’s just how things are done.

Running myths debunked

As kids, my friend Rachel and I loved myths. Not the Greek god kind, although those were fun, too, but the ideas that floated around the playground that were often accepted as fact. Swallowing a watermelon seed would make a watermelon grow in your stomach. Hair and nails grow forever after you die. Chewing gum sticks in your stomach for seven years after it’s swallowed. If you drop a penny from the top of the Empire State Building, it could kill whoever it hits.
