my parents were visting from Santa Cruz, Ca
this past weekend.
It was such a joy to have them with us.
My Mom is so caring and thoughtful.
My Dad is a Godly man.
Marie and I are so grateful to have them in our lives.
One thing I observed about my Dad and my own life this weekend.
My Dad is a disciplined stud.
I am a lazy man.
Each morning this weekend,
my Dad would wake up early and go running.
Not just around the block or a mile or two...
He ran miles each morning.
Saturday morning I walked through our garage
and there my Dad was
doing push-ups on our wood pile.
What did I do this weekend?
Slept in and woke up and eat pastries, lots of pastries.
My Dad is seriously motivated.
He survived a cancer scare 2 years ago
and is on a serious mission from God
to stay in top shape.
He even went surfing Monday morning at Trestles:
My Dad and brother-in-law Mark make the famous walk down to Trestles
What was I doing Monday morning while my Dad and Mark were surfing?Drinking coffee at Coffee Bean.
I know I have vowed to get in shape before on this little blog of mine
but today I am declaring seriousness.
I will match my Dad and start running every morning.
Except I can't tomorrow.
