"2013 has not been the year that I thought it would be for my running. For the past few months I have been looking forward to running the ING New York City Marathon as a perfect way to cap off a difficult year and to show the world what I am still capable of doing. Unfortunately, it just is not in the cards for this year. Letting go of my dream of running New York this year has been very difficult for me, but it was a decision I had to make." - Kara Goucher
Love stories, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. The following love story, sent to us by Lee Bennett, touched our hearts because he and his wife Tanya were able to change their shapes and sizes as their love for each other, their children, and healthy lifestyles transformed them inside and out. We were so moved by their story that we asked permission to share it with you. They graciously agreed.
“I am not somebody who just likes to run. I am a runner. This is the difference between a pastime and a passion. I like to play golf, but I am not a golfer. I like to cook, but I am not a chef. I don’t just like to run. I am a runner. It is a passion. It is part of who I am and is woven into the fabric of my personality, character, and psyche.” – Adam Goucher from “Running the Edge”
