Here’s how it works:
Topic: The Athletic Family
This Week Question: Do you come from an athletic family? Are your parents/siblings/spouses/children also involved in your sport(s)?
I have many very athletic family members. My dad and all of my mom’s brothers grew up playing sports and two of my uncles were and still are devout runners. I often run in the same races as my Uncle Mark and my Uncle Dennis is a high school track coach. Many of my cousins are/were athletes in high school; their sports run the gammat from baseball to soccer to field hockey to lacrosse to cheerleading. My parents played on a work softball team when I was little and my dad walked 11 miles a day on his mail route for many years. These days my mom and I go for walks (I am runner girl, she is walker girl 🙂 ) and bike rides.
I am currently single but I would love to find someone who is into sports. Of course it would be great if they were into running and/or triathlon but I would be happy with someone who loves sports/outdoors in general. I love the idea of going running or biking or hiking with someone. I love the idea of waking up and getting outdoors with someone, just enjoying the sun and getting in exercise. And when the time comes to have children, I will do my best to get them athletically involved. I would love for my kids to be into softball and soccer but I also want them to figure out what is right for them personally. I will support whatever they choose as long as it is a healthy path. I think that is all I want…a happy and healthy family.
