scott snell's thoughts:

I actually ran the Inspiration4 Mile Virtual Run twice. I ran it separately with both of my two older boys. When I told them about the Inspiration4 mission they were both immediately interested. They both have already shown some interest in space exploration, pretty standard for all kids under the age of 10 I assume, but their interest might be a bit beyond the standard. Of the two, one of them has worn his NASA shirt to the point of extreme fading and the other is always telling me about what he learned watching the YouTube channel of a former NASA employee. When I showed them the race swag with the Inspiration4 logo, they were both committed to running the 4 miles!
While I thought the swag was cool, it wasn’t my primary motivation for running. My single biggest motivation was that the Inspiration 4 mission had named St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as the charitable beneficiary of the mission.The fact that this virtual run benefitted families in need was what got me to sign up.
The part of this virtual run that I enjoyed most was sharing it with my two older boys. Sharing my passion for running with my boys has been one of the greatest experiences that being a father has brought me. Anytime I can share a running experience with my boys is a blessing! The fact that the Inspiration4 Mile Virtual Run provided the inspiration and motivation for me to share some happy miles with my boys was the most valuable takeaway for me.
