Have You Seen This? Riding the white line



SCARY TOWN — I am not an extreme sport guy. I wish I were, it’d make me much cooler. In fact, my wife and I just got life insurance, and we were asked the following questions: Do you SCUBA dive? Do you skydive? Do you rock climb? Do you ski?

Forging friendships through running

Sitting in the car with the heater and seat warmers on full blast, I look out the window at a chilly scene. The wind is howling. The sky is gray. The water on the lake looks as choppy and uneven as my self-cut bangs in third grade. Awake since 4:30 a.m., I’ve already taught a strength training class, thrown a load of laundry in the washer and herded the girls to school. It’s always tempting to drive home and crawl under the covers, but I never do. No matter how tired I am, no matter how ...

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. It was after one of these long runs that I returned to find Ali, who was three at the time, on her stomach rolling back and forth over a foam roller. When I asked what she was doing she simply said, “Playing mommy.” In her eyes, this is ...
