My dad is my biggest champion

  • Dad:What are you doing this weekend?
  • Me:I’m doing a 5K run in Hartford for the Sandy Hook Victim’s Fund.
  • Dad:Isn’t that far away?
  • Me:Yeah, it was originally only an hour from my house but it became so popular that they moved it to Hartford.
  • Dad:So you are driving 4 hours round trip to run for 20 minutes?
  • Me:Uhh… No… It’s a 5K…
  • Dad:But you run a mile in under 7 minutes.
  • Me:I was 12 when that happened. I’m praying I can do this in 40 minutes!
  • Dad:40 minutes for 3 miles?!
  • Me:Yes! It’ll probably be more like 45 minutes.
  • (Awkward pause)
  • Dad:That’s really great!
