Fathers . . .

My Dad. Wow. I don’t even know where to start on this other than to say he’s my hero.

I get my love of endurance sports from him. He was a marathon runner for nearly 30 years. Has run them all over the world. Then he was a mountain climber for a spell. He hit the summit on Mount Kilimanjaro, Rainier and a few others I don’t know very well. One thing he did that really had me beaming with pride was his 3,100 mile bike ride across the country to raise money for Young Life. It’s an organization focusing on helping young people.

He’s been a great model of someone who is driven and dedicated. I’ve applied that through my life, especially with my writing. But overall, his faith and compassion have really inspired me.

So, thank you, Dad.

Thanks to all the Dads out there! Your presence means more than you could ever imagine!

Happy Father’s Day.
