I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT OF MY FAMILY!
I heard it said that every runner has a support crew. Your family, regardless of how involved they are in your running, is your support crew. I believe this is a true statement. My family are the ones who have to deal with me being gone for 2, 3, or 4 hours on a Saturday so I can run in the woods. They are the ones who listen to me ramble about running. They meet me at the door when I return from a run. My wife makes sure I'm fueling right. Watches me and points out when I am over fatigued or at risk of injury. My family doesn't always get my love for the trails. But they do understand doing what you love, having goals, enjoying a sport and cheering for each other. We are a family who strives to be supportive of each others goals. I support them and they support me and for their support I am eternally grateful!
