Today is my father’s birthday. He would have been 73 years old... at any rate, this date tends to make me a little sad, that we can’t celebrate it with him in person. I know he’d be crazy about his grandsons, and they’d be crazy about him too.
Shark Boy knows a lot about his ‘Opa Klaus’ and sometimes asks questions about him, while I’ve been coaching the Lightning Kid on how to say the name. The best way I know to celebrate his life is to get outside with my family and move. I like to think he’s cheering us on and helping us overcome any obstacles on the way whenever we ski, bike, swim, run, or whatever.
I came across the idea that we should ‘March Forth’ on March the Fourth somewhere in my (probably online) travels last year, but it was too late to incorporate the message into my blog or other social media channels. This year, I’m going to March Forth on March 4th, and throughout the year. If you want to see how I do it today, your best bet is to follow me on Instagram...
As for the rest of the year, keep watching this space!
