When Sam was in his early 30s, his life included late nights and a half-pack of cigarettes each day. But that all changed in when his daughter was born in 2012, and Sam decided to live a better life for her sake — and his own.
After signing up for his first half marathon shortly thereafter, Sam knew he would be in for a challenge facing his first real training plan. To increase his chances of success, he set an ambitious goal of running 1,000 miles in one year with his daughter in a jogging stroller.
“That impact that I’m having on her is enormous.”
What happened after that was more than just miles. Sam and his daughter, Iris, shared conversations, experiences, memories and, yes, many miles as he completed his training and 1,000-mile personal goal.
As Sam notes in the video, their journey was much about much more than running. “If there’s anything I could pass on to my daughter, it would be a passion for achieving your goals and setting big things in your way that you hope to achieve,” he says. “That impact that I’m having on her is enormous.”
