Check out the latest issue of Run Washington for an article I wrote for Mother’s and Father’s Day about the influential affect parents can have on running.
I also wanted to share another recent article I wrote on the Runner’s Marathon of Reston.
The highlight of the race was watching 17 year old Devin Nehill, a stand out lacrosse player in the area, take the win on the women’s side. Witnessing the tears of happiness stream down her face as she rounded the last bend on the track to take the win, was breathtaking and tear inducing.
The race was extra special to me because I had the chance to hang out with my sister and watch our cousin run her first half marathon. I was extremely proud of Ginny, for not only finishing but for having the courage to even start the race. She tragically lost her brother recently and will be running Marine Corp Marathon this fall with my sister and two other friends to raise money for a foundation she has set up in his honor. I’m am honored to be coaching all four girls and to help keep my cousins memory alive.
