I am really stoked today. So inspired! Yesterday, my good friend Modou ran the Dakar Marathon at home (Senegal). Un vrai Jambar. And today I have a few friends who are running the B.A.A. Boston Marathon.
My boy and I along with my good friend, Bool, were at the Finish line to cheer them on!
It was a great moment watching so many people put their hearts and soles into running the Boston Marathon. Wow! Grateful for the inspiration and motivation. I have so much respect and appreciation for the sport, for being healthy and for lifetothefullest. Well done to everyone. Amazing people, amazing feats.
Also, my first son has this ability to make every moment we spend together special. We had great fun. So much so, that he is already wondering when he’ll be allowed to run his first marathon.
He also asked me about when I’ll get my new heart. And, just before I got emotional, I asked him why the question and when he’d want me to get a new heart. He then replied - ‘I want you to have a new heart soon, so we can race and I beat you’. I never shy away from competition - It’s challenge accepted!.
Let’s get your grandpa and your uncles (who are old runners) to coach you.
What was special about the day for you?
