Follow This Mother!

Cassie Jackson, 40 and BAMR of three, started a family-friendly running group earlier this year so that more mother runners could lace up and hit the pavement with their daughters. Cassie, who lives with husband Dan and their daughter, 8, and sons, 10 and 5, in Vienna, Va., is looking forward to running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. later this month.

The recipe called for adding a bit of honey at the end if the sauce tasted too tart, yet I was in such a hurry to serve my ravenous gang, I skimmed right past that end note. With every bite, I kept thinking the dish was good, but it lacked something. I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Looking back a few years, I now can see my running was like that Pasta Rafael recipe: enjoyable, but missing something. I realize it was a regular running partner.

When my kids were little, I’d occasionally run with my good friend Ellison: The miles passed by in an engaging blur of books read and childhood memories shared…
