Throwback Thursday - Tribute to Dad Edition

My wonderful father turned 85 years old yesterday. As you know by now, he is my greatest running inspiration.

My throwback Thursday goes to 1999 when I ran a race with him for the last time. We were joined by my brother and his wife.

Linda, André, Dad and me.

Happy 85th Dad! What did he do for his Birthday? "I took the day off work and also the day after that." Bet you not many can say that on their 85th birthdays...
