  • Christians running the race

    I know I’ve been writing about my kids a lot lately, but if not for column fodder, really, what else are kids good for?

    I jest.

    My daughters are runners, Alison more so than Laura. Alison and her husband both run marathons and “fun” little 13 or 18-milers.

    Alison loves to run around her historic town, Alexandria, Va. She likes the history and the scenery and the Starbucks coffee at the end of her runs as a reward for not dying.
