If you’ve spent any time on this blog at all, you’ll have notice that our family life is an active one. We run races (with a Chariot stroller) as a family. We take ski vacations, as a family (yes, toddlers on skis). Triathlons and duathlons are not just for adults. Bike rides, cross-country skiing with both kids in tow. One of my earliest posts (and one of my favourites) is about combining training time with family time - that might be one of the central themes of the Iron Rogue Blog in its entire 7 year history. I say all this in the preface, so you’ll take me at my word when I say might know a thing or two about keeping whole family moving.
