Be the change that you want to see in the world. – Gandhi

My daughter, Marlee, and I ran the half marathon together this year.  I really didn’t think she could do it.  She told me she had trained this year at college, which is many miles away from where I live.  I didn’t believe her.

I know she has a tough spirit, and that she works exceptionally hard in college, both as a gifted actor and an academic student.  Still, honestly, I wasn’t sure she could really complete 13.1 miles.  I had trained hard and run these races every summer.  Marlee normally cheered for me when I woke her up after I got home from the race.  She would yawn and smile her sweet smile.  But this year was different.  Marlee surprised me.
