3 Generations Running and Racing

It’s no secret I love running.  Where I got that gene from is a mystery.  My dad is very athletic, actually a retired professional athlete, but never a distance runner.  My mom grew up just as girls sports were being introduced.  She was recruited to play on the high school golf team because they needed members, and even won a set of golf clubs at a tournament – for having the worst score.
