Physical activity has always been a part of my life, not something I was really conscious about. It feels almost biological and I realize why...
THIS is my dad.
I don't remember, but I'm sure I was there.
He is my fitness role model.
My dad has always been active, whether it was running, playing baseball or basketball, or cycling.
There has never been a time in my life that my dad was inactive.
In two months, my dad will turn 60. He gets up every morning and rides his bike. He hikes. He lifts weights. He stays ACTIVE.
Thinking about the great example my dad has been over the years has made me acutely aware of the influence I have on my own children.
I don't have to preach.
I don't have to force.
I just have to move!
I'm sure you never realized the gift you gave us!
*Dad, I want your shoes. The yellow laces are awesome. *When I run, I look just like this, one knee wrapped. No facial hair, though!
