Musical Monday

Okay, you might be wondering why I picked this song, Runner, by Manfred Mann . . . .



I have a reason–I promise.

Besides it being a great song, I thought it fitting since I ran a half marathon this past weekend while my dad ran a full marathon!

Yep, 64 years old, and my dad is still running marathons.

So, I had to pick this song.

I showed up on my dad’s doorstep the night before race day and surprised him by announcing I would run the half marathon while he ran the full.

I’d heard it might be his last one, so I had to go up there and celebrate this milestone with him. I mean, he’s been running marathons since the early 80s.

I’ll talk more about race day with my dad in tomorrow’s post, but let this song be a little warm up.

Tune in tomorrow for the details. It was such a great weekend!

Happy Monday, everyone!

    That’s lots of running… way to go! I was proud to get to four miles today. But you’re the running queen!! I like the Olympic images in this video. Looking forward to Winter Games starting on Friday. Looking forward to details of your experience… maybe… what do you think about while running for two hours? 🙂 Happy Monday!

    What an awesome surprise for him!

    Congrats to both of you. That’s incredible that he’s running marathons at 64. I’d love to read about how he trains for them.

    I hadn’t thought about that song in ages. It’s just as cool as I remember it.
