TOGETHER WE STRIDE My children’s school shamed me, err inspired me. They mandate that all able bodied children 4th grade and beyond must run 1 mile per day. If it’s possible for a 4th grader then I submit that a large portion of able bodied adults can do it as well! This example motivated me to run 400 miles in 2015 and 1,000 in 2016. It was the excuse I’ve been searching for and I'm sharing my excuse with you.
