Mountain Buggy terrain trains with an Olympian!

On January 14, 2012, I qualified for my third Olympic Team, becoming the oldest winner of the Olympic Marathon Trials at 37 years of age. While most Olympians peak in their early to mid-twenties, I am running my personal best times at above the age of 35. I am married and the father of three young girls ages 2, 4, and 6. How do I balance my competitive running with family? It takes a balancing act and support.

Tick, tick, tick... the baby is down for  a nap. This one usually lasts 30 minutes, and it has taken me 10 minutes to get laundry on, organize dinner, and then settle myself in this rocking chair with my tunes playing at just the right volume (Ray La Montagne pandora station). So, focus. Here, now, present: This blog. I want to write but just cant seem to pin my butt in a seat long enough to get anything of substance. I've been told to just discipline myself.
