Today I ran the Bolder Boulder with my son. For the sixth time.
I don’t really like running. Running is hard.
People ask me why I run if I don’t like running.
I had time to think about that today. I run because I can. I run Bolder Boulder because I get to run with my son.
I run this race and think of the fathers and sons that are not running, that will never be able to run together. I can run because fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, people I will never meet, served and sacrificed so that my son and I could have this day together. I run because not to run would be wasting the gift of freedom that has been given to me by these people I will never meet. Thank You.
