It’s a way to experientially teach perseverance, goal setting and mental fortitude. My husband and I grew up student athletes and as such we put an emphasis on sports and healthy activity with our three children. Ever since the kids were 2, 3, and 4 we’ve been running together and eventually racing and training together. It has allowed us to have individual and shared goals and to support and celebrate each other. This year the kids and I started the RW streak on Memorial Day – we’ve already put in over 1100 miles!

RW is my favorite magazine and RW+ helps me be even more connected to quality articles, like-minded people, and information that I find relevant. The discounts are great too!

It connects people, it is FUN, and it is a great family activity. I am proud to be a part of the beautifully supportive running community.

My favorite time to run is when it is still dark and experiencing the sunrise. However, it depends on the day and for how long I’m going – as early as 4:30 a.m. and as late as 8 p.m. I’m no stranger to headlamps!

I’ll do it anywhere – on the trails, road, at the beach, on a treadmill, at the track, back and forth in a hotel hallway, in an airport…when I have my choice I am drawn to the trails among all the wonders nature has to offer.

As a huge carb lover my current obsession is with the ChicknLegs Carbo-load running short…they feature a pattern of loaves of bread and bread baskets! So fun and also super comfortable and functional.

I have so many goals! To inspire my three children to be happy, healthy, and active; To continue my RW streak for as long as humanly possible – again, if I can, do!; To maintain my heart and bone health; To get faster…who doesn’t want to get faster??
