Slimming Down Dad Episode 5: Playing The Role of Coach

Running Date

This past week has been seriously hectic. Between working out, work, and family commitments, my days are all beginning to run together. Things were so busy that I wasn’t able to record the Slimming Down Dad Podcast a few days early, like I usually do, and resorted to recording and editing on Thursday night. My apologies if it sounds a little thrown together because, in truth, it kind of was.

This episode revolves around an experience I had recently with my wife. The two of us went out for a run together late last week. I can’t remember a time when we’ve exercised like that before and we both found it tremendously enjoyable. So much so, in fact, that we’ve had a couple more running dates since then.

In a way I’ve kind of become my wife’s coach. I’m doing my best to nurture her desire to get healthy and become more active. I’ve learned a couple of things along the way and thought I would share for any couples that may find themselves in a similar situation.
