Passion Always Wins: A Conversation with Barbara Mann
Dr. Barbara Mann is an inspiration. She is a dedicated mother of twin girls, a doctor at a renowned hospital in New York City, and an athlete at the top of her game: Barbara regularly age places in New York Road Runner races; she is a pace leader at large city races, all the while pursuing her own aggressive running goals. Barbara began running at a young age. She was subsequently dissuaded from her passion, only to naturally return to it as a solace from the stresses of life. Barbara’s story illustrates how we cannot be kept from what we love, the importance of believing in ourselves, and that often, a seeming detour can set us on a path of self-discovery that is free from the confines of expectations, and which ultimately leads us right back to our own start.
