As one of the precautionary measures during the Covid-19 pandemic, all running events have been cancelled. This is the story of a young lady, who in partnership with her 7 year old son, created her own races.
Together they ran and they taught and they learned and they inspired. They did this 100 miles at a time, in their back yard and in their house and going up and down the stairs in that house - thousands of times.
Why does Stephanie take on such big challenges? In her words:
Running has taught me so much. Running shows that anything is possible. Running shows that you can do anything. People are capable of so much more. I want people to see that. I want people to want to achieve their goals. I want people to want more, to go out and be the best they can be.
One of the things Stephanie loved about creating her own races was having her son create the medals for the races. Medals always mean so much to receive after crossing a finish line. They come to mean a lot more when they are designed by your 7 year old son.
Stephanie and her son were actually on the local news together.
