Peyton's Page

This was my "Kids Running" Page, but I am changing it to Peyton's Page.

My incredible son, Peyton, passed away on June 4, 2013.  He was an amazing boy who loved to run and loved to encourage others.

Peyton's Facebook Page can be found here:

Peyton's Song "Running on the Wind" by Logging Miles

I believe in encouraging kids to run by showing them how fun it is to get out and have an adventure.

I have written about the adventures Peyton and I have had over the years and I will share them here in hopes that he will continue to inspire others to run, jump and throw like he did.

As you can tell from my blog, I have battled my own weight issues.  Although my weight ballooned in my twenties and thirties, my problems did not start as an adult.  I have battled these issues since I was a child.  I clearly remember my pant size was "husky" and I can not remember ever talking about healthy eating with anyone in my family.  In fact, as a child growing up in a family of five kids and a single mother we ate mostly government assistance food which was high in fat and loaded with sodium.

I receive a lot of emails asking me how to motivate kids to run and how to run as a family.  I am in no way an expert, but I have a wife who is proud of what I have accomplished and I will always be the proud dad of a nine year old son who loved to run and loved to help others.

I hope that some of our stories and the tools I am listing on this page will help you get out and have an adventure with your child too.
