Today my 71 year old dad and I took our first walk.

For those of you who don’t know, my dad had a mild or slight stroke the day after Thanksgiving.

He hasn’t exercised in decades but has committed to walking with me.

We walked for just under 10 minutes.
It may not have been far and may not have been fast, but it was a great start.

These were our first steps in the right direction.

My dad is an inspiration. If he can do it, so can you.

I want my dad around and in my life for years to come.

Take care of your health. Encourage your family to take care of theirs. Support each other. Push each other. Move together. Be active together. Care for each other. Love each other.

Thank you dad. You made my day. Let’s get healthy and be healthy so we can spend more quality time together.
