Why We Run Wednesdays – Teach Your Children

We are going to start something on the blog called “Why We Run Wednesdays”. Some posts might be short, some might be longer, some might just be pictures, but all will hopefully serve as a reminder as to why Marissa and I set out to train for the Boston Marathon on April 21 (20 weeks away!)

Here is the first WWRW (sort of a lay-up) : I am running the Boston Marathon to inspire my daughters (Roo’s neices). One of the most important qualities that I want to instill in them is an appreciation of hard work. You have to get up. You have to put in the time. You have to toil, sweat, question yourself. No one else is going to do it for you. If you want it, go and get it. This is why I get up early, while everyone else is sleeping in a warm house, and train. That, and I’m hoping that one of these days Mickey will greet me with a hug at the end of a run…

Please consider donating to the Mass General Marathon Team to raise money for the pediatric cancer center. Roo and I are honored to run on the team this year.
