Last weekend, my family had the honor of watching my dad run a marathon (his 12th or 13th--he wasn't sure!) in the gorgeous Black Hills of South Dakota.
I am very proud of my dad for being so strong of body, mind and spirit. Despite having stage 4 cancer, he not only ran this race and finished, but he even had his best personal time in 5 years! Look at this exhilaration:
I wanted to share this limerick my dad wrote a year ago, because this embodies his philosophy.
Out there is a fellow named Dan
Who runs just as far as he can;
"There are cancer survivors
And then there are thrivers"
He said as he went out and ran.
Is that not an amazing attitude?! We love you, Dad!
