    I run because the US government says I have no choice if I want to remain a Sheep Dog.

    So get maybe 25 miles a week, have run the Vegas and few few other halfs. I do not run while camping.. I'd rather wake up early to make coffee and grumble words of anti-encouragement to anyone who cannot take a break for a few days

    I occasionally run, when I was in the Navy I ran a few 5k's for charities and such. now I just go for a run for no other reason.

    Yeah they've got me doing the same thing. It's a good thing I really enjoy it. I don't have anything scored for a run over a 10k. I have a couple of 32 mile in 12 hour or less adventure races under my belt. I've just never ran a really long race.

    Love it! We are a sporty family too...husband runs, every breathing opportunity that is available (he may wear running clothes under his suits) teen daughter runs, and competition cheer...they are both fast and wanted the Christmas tree to be adorned in those medals (must google that image, it didn't happen here!). I 'ran' just to catch those that fled (occupation unveiled). We have another preteen daughter that is training for running, but her true sport is fencing. Husband isn't 'trail runner', but would be great to meet up with other happy healthy campers at some park races or just general camping.

    25 marathons, makes me smile, such talent ;). What a terrific talent and shared passion for you both, it's a Daddy daughter sport our home. I have medical issue and just cannot safely press on for long distances.
    Love the tough mudder match! Hi five to your wife too!

    If you see me running....Might be a good idea to try and keep up....I don't scare that easy...
