Fatherhood has forever changed my life. It has given me a sense of purpose that was unimaginable prior. Marley, my daughter, amazes me every day with her intelligence and positive energy. She has mad me a much better man. Swimming with her is my favorite physical activity. Her swimming skills and endurance far surpasses mine when I was nine years old. In fact her butterfly stoke is light years beyond anything I could do. I have grown to appreciate the time I spend with her. I would like to be around as long as possible in her life and certainly much longer that my father was in mine. Poor heath, specifically heart disease cut my father’s life. He see me get married and have a family. The best way to honor him it create my own lasting legacy, framed with health and happiness. I am using this month as a springboard for recommitting myself to living a healthier lifestyle.
