The world needs more Fit Fathers like automotive journalist Dan Carney. In his words: After my wife and I had kids we instantly understood the importance of leading by example. Instead of telling the kids to turn off the TV, get off the couch and get active, I did that myself. Now I’m a triathlete and have a daughter who is a college runner, a son who is a high school athlete and another daughter playing middle school sports. Fit Fathers’ efforts will encourage others to come to the same realization. I hope other dads have as much fun racing with and against their kids as I do with mine!
