What Inspires You?

What inspires you? For me it's my Boys.  Not a day goes by that I don't give thanks for the fine men they have all grown into.  Oh there were days when it didn't seem as if any of us would get out alive!  Passion on both sides.  Passion that got us through and passion that keeps us together even though we don't see each other as often as I'd like.

Last Saturday while I was at the Reggae Marathon Race Expo representing Reggae Marathon my cell phone rang.  Twice actually...I missed the first ring while talking to a couple interested in my favourite race.  I got the second call and it was Andrew.  He was at the Expo picking up his Race Kit for Sunday's Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (he was running the Half Marathon).  He was checking in to see if his Old Man was at the Expo.  I can't remember if/when I told him I would be there but he did.  That's him above posing...what they'll do to help out their Dad.

Andrew's a pretty good runner.  All the boys are athletic.  From Football, Baseball to Basketball...they all make it look so easy.  It's a pleasure to watch them perform and believe me I've watched enough games! It was a bitch getting into downtown Toronto Sunday morning for the micro-second it took him to cross the finish line.  It was worth it.  Inspirational!

Until next time...
