We are so excited to be kicking off a brand new series called Couple of the Quarter where once every three months we go deep with a couple about how running fits into their relationship. It will be one of two scenarios -- they are either both runners or just one partner is a runner, like our first twosome today -- Andrew and Darla Forbes. 

Andrew and Darla are both health professionals in their 50s from Belleville ON who have four adult children and a very full life but they somehow make it all work despite one of them being super passionate about running and the other...not so much. We get into how this impacts their family life, whether it ever causes friction between them, how they navigate the inevitable running social functions, and what happens when the runner can’t run or has a disappointing race. 

As you’ll hear in this episode, Darla and Andrew are such a blast and I think you’re going to love their energy. Just a warning, this episode has plenty of adult language so if you have young children nearby we would recommend grabbing a set of headphones first! And now onto our conversation with Darla and Andrew Forbes.
