A Letter To My Dad

My Dad.  He's awesome.  Remember this letter he wrote me a few years ago?  The Daddy that every girl grows up and wants their husband to be like.  He's a runner.  He knows about perfect form and perfect gait.  



He's been asking me about my running.  How is my training going, etc.  I sent him an email this morning:

Hi Dad,



I forgot to tell you when we talked yesterday, while I was at the running store they also analyzed my gait and form.  They said I actually had really good form compared to most but that it needed to improve.  :)  

When the salesman started to explain what I needed to do I smiled.  Chi Running!  I came home and watched the DVD you made for me.  

This is me.  Front leg out straight and heel striking.

This is what I should look like.  Back leg straight.  Front foot not coming in front of the knee, foot relaxed.  Elbows are wrong in this photo but elbows never come in front of sides of body.

This is what I feel like I am doing and look like!

In reality this is what I am doing and saying.  I AM running!!!!




:D  I hope you enjoyed your photo tutorial this morning.  Have a great day!!

Love,
Rachel

    1. Every girl should have a Dad who shares something with them. It's about taking the time. Doesn't matter what it is.

  3. Well, I certainly enjoyed your photo tutorial - I'm sure he did too. It sounds like your father knows about a lot more than just running.

    1. My father does. He knows everything. If you ask him if he knows the name of that pretty flower over there he'll tell you the exact name. "It's a pink flower"! :D "Do you know the name of that tree dad?" "Why yes, I do! It's a tree with green leaves"! :D Uh huhhhhh.
