This year I'm choosing to conquer exactly 26.2 miles of Chicago by honoring the man who taught me everything I know about the art of running. Dad's relentless and eternal words of wisdom: relax, don't hunch over, back straight, open up the chest, breathe, pace yourself... and finish as strong as you can. Since age 11, every run has begun and ended with these orders being barked on a loop in my head... always for the better.
As corny as the analogy goes, this is essentially how Dad chose to take his 5-year battle.... "in-stride," relaxed, at an easy pace and with the strongest of finishes. Obviously a 26.2-mile marathon pails in comparison... but around him, you'd never know it. But it is, in fact, these words, Dad's undying encouragement and the tremendous support of all of you that will help push me through the cramps, blisters, sore muscles... and the eternal search for the finish line.
Thank you all for the support you've given Dad, our family and myself over the past six years.
