Bernie Calcote lives in Austin, Texas, is married with three kids and is a home builder. After getting married Bernie started running to keep his wife company when she was running early in the morning. Running enabled Bernie to further connect with and love his wife, but what he didn’t expect was to also fall in love with running. Bernie describes how trail running allows him to connect with himself and the creator. We talk about making running a priority and how Bernie and his wife have used running to help the adoption community through the Chosen Half Marathon and 5K in New Braunfels, TX. Not only have they been able to raise money for the general cause and specific families, but they also have used the race to support their own adoption. Bernie shares some great running advice and challenges our community to make the sacrifice to go run.
