Father and Son Reach 100 Miles

- Physical Activity Participation
My son Ian and I in Houston, Texas, ran more than 100 miles combined last school year. I ran a 100 mile race in a single day, where Ian supported me and ran me to the finish line after 28 grueling hours of running/walking. I always love to inspire family and friends and show them that with perseverance, a good attitude, and hard work, the mind, body, and spirit can accomplish anything. Ian ran his first 5k race last year and I was so proud of him and his achievement. Our family focuses on exercise as a daily protocol and we try to encourage each other daily to be the best we can be. This is my story of how my son and I cherish our time together through physical exercise!
