#powerofdad: Power To My Dad (and a giveaway)
With Father's Day just around the corner, I find it fitting to post about my dad. He is an amazing man. He's overcome quite a bit in the past 7 years. Within a week of each other, his mother and wife passed away. What could have broken him only made him stronger. This man rose from the devastation and has found a new outlook on life - running.
This past January, when Gary Allen made his 700+ mile run from the top of Cadillac Mountain to Washington, DC, my dad ran with him for a portion on the back roads of Freeport.
I haven't run with him, yet. But I will be at his first race to cheer him on, support him and take tons of pictures on July 4th at the LL Bean 10k.
I am proud of my dad. He is a true inspiration to me and proof that it is never too late to start running!
Seeing my dad smile again warms my heart more than words can describe.
I love you, dad. Happy Father's Day!
