A new decade brings excitement, abundance, and possibility. Pictured is our family at the Baltimore Running Festival in October 2019. Rachel, Hannah, and I each ran a leg in the marathon relay (on separate teams), Abbey completed the half marathon, and Phoebe cheered for us with Grandad and Bebe. Running became a hobby of mine 4 years ago to spend more time with our family, get in shape, and try to keep up with these amazing ladies! Rachel leads the Girls on the Run program at school where Phoebe can now run a 5k.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by the virus. During this time of distancing, our family has enjoyed many runs together. We run for our physical and mental health, we run to honor those on the front line, we run for those we lost, we run for each other.

I have learned much about myself through running and realize the many parallels to financial planning. We get better incrementally through habits, focus, goals with time frames, patience, strategy during setbacks, commitment, sacrifice, and grit. Smaller accomplishments do cascade to larger ones…over time. I trust we will emerge from this pandemic more connected, more focused, and more thankful for what we have. Stay active, stay safe, keep running!
