Very interesting article.
Just ran my 2nd half this weekend at the annual Kansas City Corporate Challenge. Wasn't planning this race but since I work for a software company, there aren't a lot of 46 year old women they could coax to run in my age group!
Since this was a race for team points, I wanted to do more than just finish happy this time around. Unlike my first half a few weeks ago, I wanted to…Continue

For all those parents who run and sometimes feel guilty for time on trails vs time spent with family, a little inspiration that maybe it does have a positive effect on your kids. My son (7 years old) woke us up early in the morning and is fully dressed and asks us if it is okay if he goes for a run. I groggily asked him what his route was going to be and he gave a full detailed description of his proposed route with side trails and all. Couldn't argue with that so off he went on his first…Continue
