Next Sunday is the Terry Fox Run. I'll be at High Park for 9am, and that means my kids will be there.
My oldest son is 12 going on 17. When I wake him up on a weekend before noon, he deems it cruel and unusual punishment. You should have seen the look on his face when I told him we were going to be in High Park at 9am next Sunday.
I looked my sweet boy in the eyes, reminded him that Terry Fox ran a marathon a day on one leg, and told him he can get up at 8am next Sunday. He didn't complain again.
Thanks to all who have pledged my run thus far. If you can spare a dime or two, I am collecting pledges here.
Here's my soon-to-be teenager six years ago.
