My friend Kevin Scholla has landed a position as a contributing writer over at Breitbart Sports and he has a fabulous piece that was published earlier today. Kevin had the privilege of interviewing Chuck Heath, Sr. at which time they talked about all of the Heath kids, hard work, and the life-long value of playing sports.
From Breitbart Sports:
One thing Sarah Palin is known for is her toughness. In order to deal with her detractors and the lamestream media, she has to have thick skin. She has to be a pit bull with lipstick. A barracuda. No one has been attacked so personally and so consistently in recent years more than Governor Palin, yet through it all she keeps on keeping on with drive, passion, and that winning smile.
Palin's incredible spine of steel and servant's heart come from a foundation in faith and family, but perhaps her tenacity comes from somewhere else. Perhaps sports and all that comes with being a part of a team were the catalyst. Chuck Heath Sr., Palin's father, seems to think so.
"Sarah worked and worked and worked," Heath said. "Because of her terrific work ethic she became my best hurdler and went to state every year. In cross country she became my number one distance runner. She was very versatile." More
