A little late for Father's Day....

I tried to put this on my blog 3 years ago but couldn't get it to work right.
Finally here it is.

This was actually what my Dad did over 20 years ago.

Shows my mom with him back in the day, when he was running across the states. They would sleep
on gym floors and then he would run about 50 miles a day while she would follow him in the car. I
would be home praying a lot. And worrying.

Aww.... what an amazing guy your dad is! And what a lovely tribute! A family legacy to pass down to posterity. What a treasure. (This makes his determined efforts to get out of his wheelchair and walk now even more meaningful.)

Thanks for posting!

Wow, amazing. I found it very interesting that he didn't even start running until later in life.
So inspiring!

Wow! You have told me about the Boston Marathons before but not this. This is great and so very inspiring. Are any of your siblings runners? Just wondering if any decided to follow in your dad's footsteps.
