Marathon Week - Wednesday Pictures - Cairo

Over the last 18 months, it’s been awesome to see Cairo, my 16 year old son embrace the sport of running.  It has been a huge way to bond with him.  He’s learned a lot about commitment and has seen the success of hard work.

We’ve shared the challenges of pushing ourselves while running and pushing ourselves to get up at O-Dark-Thirty in the morning.

We finished the early races together until he found his speed!

Cairo starts placing in some races.  That definitely put a smile on his face!

Cairo runs his first Half Marathon and beats me!  :)

Cairo and I weathered the storm at the 2011 Dallas White Rock Marathon.  He did very well running the Half Marathon.


In the fall of 2011, Cairo took a break from distance training to focus on speed, a.k.a. High School Cross Country.  It was cool to be a spectator and to cheer him on.  He made me a proud papa with his performances!

I’m so glad to be able to share these experiences with Cairo.  I has been so rewarding!
