Proud of My Dad Share

Jax had to chose something special to represent his dad for his share at school today. This is what he brought in:

He told his class that his dad, “jumped over hurdles and that he ran really fast.”

PS: Listen Jax, you’re now back on top as my favorite child… (I’m kidding, I don’t have a favorite. Unless you keep talking about how great of a track star-hurdler I was).

Run Fast, Turn Left, Be First


Perfect leg turnover

Imagine your worst nightmare and now imagine your best dream… Now overlap them and that’s the perfect analogy for running. If you’ve ever played a sport you know the worst part of every practice was the last 30 minutes or so… Because you had to run.

So it makes perfect sense that I would decide to chose the sport where you literally only run. I mean you literally just run. That’s the actual sport… The worst part of every other sport is actually a sport in its own right.

And I loved it. I loved every second of it. And I hated it. I hated every second of it. I guess that’s true love? Fall in love for not the good parts that make you happy, but fall in love for how happy you are even during the bad parts.

I can’t wait to be able take Jax out on the track for the first time. I’m excited to hurdle with him… At least until he can beat me… Then it’s really time to retire.

Run fast, turn left, be first.
