Action speaks louder than words: How we set examples for our children

I ran my first marathon a week before my youngest daughter turned one. Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run.

Great competitors make a sport better

Mile 12 of a tough half-marathon. My hamstring is tight, ready to snap like an overstretched rubber band. My lungs are full of fire. My head is pounding harder than my feet. I will run nowhere near as fast as I usually run. No PR’s on this day, yet I feel prouder and more accomplished than ever.
