I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

Thanks, I Needed That!!

I knew this was going to be difficult, but never imagine how tough it would be emotionally.  I had totally turned into that couch potato guy -- last night, I had put my long run aside all weekend and was looking for every excuse in the world to not do it.  I stood at the door almost with tears in my eyes because I just wanted to sit and relax the last bit before my Monday work week.  Well, I'm proud to say that I talked myself out the door and did my run -- my wife was working on this for my birthday in a few weeks, but could tell that I needed it, so this was waiting for me to see when I got home from my run - My cup Runneth over!

For good measure -- today was supposed to be a rest day, but with new found motivation, and the fact that I worked from home today, I went out for a short two mile run at lunch!
