OUR FINISH LINE SAYS ALS DONE!
Four years ago I ran the Falmouth for the 1st time. Papa was waiting for me at the finish line. This year, he’s not going to be there, but I will run for him. For his memory, to make him proud of me, to raise money for the charity he held most dear. For myself, because knowing I am happy and healthy would have given him great joy. Because that’s who he was; my grandfather didn’t complain about his health or his struggles, he spent his life trying to help other people with their difficulties. Papa was always the first person I called in a crisis or just to chat. He would give advice, or problem solve if he could, but he would also regale us with his own stories. Not only did he tell us dozens of cautionary tales so we could learn from other people’s mistakes, he also flooded us with stories from his own life, so we could lead by example. Papa was my hero and the greatest man I’ve ever known. I’ll run in honor of his memory, but also to raise money to fight ALS so other people don’t have to lose their heroes like we did.
