Some people take all the excuses away…Adam Gorlitsky is one of those people. We had the honor of meeting him and his dad today at the Surf City Marathon expo. He will be finishing the last 5 miles of the course on Sunday and you can bet that we will be cheering him on. Seeing him made me think of my dad, whose ability to walk was also taken away from him in time. I remember seeing my dad struggle with each step that he took…it was heartbreaking to witness. Losing my dad was such a difficult experience and running was my way of coping with his death. I ran in his memory and with his desire to walk and live in mind. This Sunday, when I’m feeling tired and not running my best, I’m going to dig deep and think of Adam on the course because he took all my excuses away today.
