    I just want to say how proud I am for you taking the time to train and help these young girls that otherwise wouldn’t have a “Running buddy” if you or others wouldn’t take the time to make these girls feel special for not only the day of the run, but a life time. People probably don’t know that when you say you “work out” or ” in training”, you do it EVERYDAY! If you have plans that require you to not be able to work out or train that evening, you’ll get up at 4:30 in the morning to make sure you get your work out or run in regardless. I think you are a little nuts at times, but it’s these stories that make me proud to be “your other half.”

    • Ah, thanks Larry. I do what I can, and I love when my passion for health and fitness and my love for my grandchildren combine into one super activity! I also am proud to be your other half–even though I think you’re a little nuts too. 🙂

    I think this program sounds wonderful. I wish they did it at the school I work at. Is it always the same time of year?

  3. WOW! This is such an interesting post. I am heading over to check out GOTR right now. It would be an excellent program for girls in the El Paso community where there is a good deal of teenage (and adult) obesity (and poverty). Doesn’t take a lot of money to run and you can do it about anywhere, at least in the day time! So glad you ran with your two darling granddaughters. I have done a 5K with one of mine and hope to run with the other someday, too.
