Run Daughter, Run Father
This book delves into the running and racing adventures of the author Mark Ryall and his daughter Stephanie. When she was just seven years old, Stephanie shows a keen interest in running. Realizing she cannot be held back, Mark gets off the couch and joins in her workouts. Over the next seventeen years, they both progress as distance runners and pursue shared dreams in competitive age-group racing. They encounter many ups and downs along the way as Stephanie matures into a serious university cross country and ultra trail runner, and Mark transitions into triathlons, representing Canada in three ITU World Championships. As both father and coach, Mark always looks to safeguard Stephanie’s health and long-term athletic development, which causes her to push back at times. Using personal stories, humorous situations, training advice, and significant scientific research, the author lends the reader a unique look inside the world of younger and older runners. A great resource for runners of all ages, as well as their coaches and parents!
