My dad is running the LA Marathon on Sunday. Running a marathon is a pretty big accomplishment for anyone, but my dad is 69, ran the California International Marathon in December, and four weeks from now will be running the Boston Marathon. Three marathons in four months? Not too shabby.

To honor my father's achievements in running, today I offer you a special edition of "My Parents Were Awesome" based on the blog of the same name. Have you seen it? Seems a lot of us had some pretty awesome parents. Thanks to John & Greg at Orabor for telling me about it.
