Running Together - With Brent and Bela( 0:28:11)       
Episode Information
When I started Running Together late in 2021, I was asked by for a logo or photo. My wife suggested one of a silhouette of me with my son, Brent and daughter, Bela, running together at Woodend Beach some years ago. They showed me the way to running as a family, to running as a social encounter. As parents, we are responsible for teaching much to our children. Often, however, the learning can be equally rich from them
