Good News: Marathon Mom Saves The Day


As a mom, you never know when your athletic ability or education will save the day.  Take 37-year-old mom Sarah from West Washington.  Sarah has run several half marathons AND just completed her masters in Pastoral counseling.  The other day she was in her living room and had just changed into her running clothes.  She was folding laundry before heading out the door for her run, when she noticed a man poking around her detached garage.  The man came out of the garage on her husband’s bike.  She told him to leave it and go, but he took off on it.  So, Sarah did what any protective mother would do – she took off after him on foot!  He ditched the bike moments later, but she continued after him, yelling at neighbors to call 911.  As she was chasing him, she was trying to talk to him about his feelings to uncover why he stole the bike.  The thief never talked to her, but she was able to continue the chase until the police showed up.  Read more about super mom Sarah here.
