August 12th is a special day because it is my son's birthday, it is also my best friend's birthday and my goddaughter's birthday.
Not a bad combination for remembering all that is good in life.
Life is truly a Marathon (Me yellow hat - 1986; Son - below - 2014) with many ups and downs and struggles along the way. Giving it your best and having the will to keep going is what matters most in life.
It was always my hope to run a Marathon with my son but too many injuries does not allow me to run/jog more than a 5K today. However, the memories of years past will always remain!
