Go Dad, go!

Today is the the first year I have not woken up before the party goers leave the clubs, to sit along the route of the 2 Oceans marathon eating hot cross buns with my mom and sisters. We make a mockery out of the runners legs and strange running style while cheering them along, but all we're really there to do is give my Dad a big 'Go Dad go' when he strides past. Now I'm not there, my mom sends me updates along the way - the latest let me know that Dad is running alongside Bruce Fordyce; so here I am, waiting and hoping to catch a glimpse of Pai on the telly. My Dad is basically one of my favourite people in the world; when I was 11 I cycled my first Argus Cycle tour, which I rode him until I was 16. I hope to say I ran the 2 Oceans alongside him in the next 5 years.
