Father’s Day.

June 17, 2013

YYesterday was Father’s Day.  My day started with an early morning five-mile run with my wife.  It is  one of those things (running) that I like to get out of the way first.

There are times when I don’t feel like going.  I know that waking up at 5:30 am to run is not exactly an exciting activity.  But then if I don’t exercise I feel guilty.  My body has been good to me: it took a lot of beating from surgeries to endless chemo sessions.  It allowed me to complete marathons in between sessions or just be around for precious moments with family, friends, and you.  So if I don’t pay homage to my body I feel guilty.

Yesterday also was the first time that we broke the five-mile barrier.  It was a confidence builder leading up to a half-marathon this August.  My Father’s Day celebration was capped off with a barbecue with the family.  Oh, I got some gifts too which was cool.

Going to Manila.

This Thursday, I leave for Manila for a short visit.  My oncologist had cleared me to go when I saw him last week.  He said that I look fit and tan (Doc, I am asian and brown-skinned, remember?).  I do feel good and looking forward to see my family back home.  It is one of those opportunities that I just have to make the most of it.  The lessons I have learned on the value of life has made me appreciate all the blessing that I have.

I enjoy each day that is given to me.  What makes it special is how and who I spend it with.


P.S. Some friends were asking about Ethan.  He is busy enjoying the summer and too busy to write blogs…hehe.
