This Run is for You Dad

Many of you know my father has been struggling with an inoperable brain tumor for just under a year. I am torn in writing that his struggle is over and he is at peace. He passed away August 30th with his family at his side.

He was a courageous man who's spirit to live life to its fullest carries on in me every day. I have learned many lessons from my father but my favorite is to make the most out of today. There are no guarantees for a tomorrow.

Today I will run for him. He enjoyed hearing stories of where running took me and what I saw along the journey. This run is for you dad. Your life is your legacy...

My dear coach,

He can be proud of you since you teach the same to us at CES.

I am terribly sorry to hear about your loss. Michael and I both lost our fathers within the first 3 years of our marriage(we have been married 6), so while we can not understand your particular circumstance, we understand what the loss of a father means to a child. We will pray for you and your family during this tough time.
God Bless,
