Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads!  I hope everyone had a great day!
 
Dad, thank you for making up the reason why your ears ring and telling your most gullible daughter who then proceeded to tell everyone on the playground.  Because you were the smartest guy in the world and wouldn't ever lie to me ;)  Thank you for explaining the difference between trekkers and trekkies and then taking me to every Star Trek and Sci Fi movie that came out while I live at home.  Thank you for taking me prom dress shopping (and every other kind of shopping), seeing a new movie (usually opening night), going to the bookstore, helping me move countless times all over Chicago, and providing support (financially and emotionally).  Thank you dad for everything over the last 30 years which is just too much to list here!  I can't wait for the day I can convince you to run a race with me ;) It's going to happen
-------------------
Today would have been the better day to run 10 miles.  Although the humidity remained high it was overcast with a nice breeze.  I had to take advantage the cooler temps once my hubbie decided to do his weekly 3 miles.  I wasn't feeling the motivation but I like to have someone to run with so I changed quickly to go with him.  Once I got moving the easy 3 felt great.  Nice to have a minor redemption after yesterday.   Other than the run and watching the US Open we also spent some time together at the driving range.  I shanked and biffed practically all but 5 balls.  Golf is seriously the most frustrating sport.  Frustrating but still a fun way to spend an hour or two.

What a nice tribute to your dad, sounds like a great guy! Keep trying on the race-with-you thing: my dad is doing his first half at age 62 this fall (with my mom, also a non-runner) and my sister and I are going to do it with him!

I have been watching the US open too but I can't play it at all and all those rules just confuse me! Have a good week!
