Picture of the week ~ 85 miles on his 85th birthday


My dad completed his 85 mile run to celebrate his 85th birthday!
So inspired by his determination and grit. He never stopped putting one foot in front of the other. He began running 7 minutes/walking 3 minutes intervals, but at mile 60 he developed severe back pain and was forced to walk the remainder. I was so impressed with his perseverance to continue on with the pain he was having.
