    Well said Megan, well said.

    I'm sure your father is proud.

    As someone who's run countless half marathons, I suspect I'm only half the man your father is, but based on your description of him and the fine example he's set for you, that might not be half bad.

    I'll keep running...and learning.

    Best regards and thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for your thoughtful, well-written article. Life, and marathons, can focus on the trivial or the most important things, the things that build personal integrity and character. All of us are on a journey with others; all of us experience pain and illness, injustice and sorrows. But if we look for the good and the example of those who really love us, we can endure hopefully and happily till the finish line. Your article gave me something good to focus on as my day's journey began.
