Family and Friends,
If you follow me, you know that I am an avid runner and running coach. Movement is one of the best ways to invest in your health. If your home is your greatest investment, then investing in your health is your most important 401K.
Running is the best way that I have found to invest in my family’s health. Whether your new year’s resolution is a personal commitment or a family affair, planning to participate in a race is one of the best ways to set a fitness goal. A race sets a date for fulfilling your fitness goal.
If you’re interested in making it a family affair, which The Swans most certainly do, I could not say enough great things about We Run OC Kids (WeROCK). This nonprofit, public-service corporation was just featured in Runner’s World!
Life is like a Marathon. The mission of We ROCK is to teach our community’s teenagers the important skills of goal-setting, discipline, and self-confidence through the design and delivery of instructional programs for proper training for and completion of a marathon (OC Marathon Festival).
