Merry Christmas

So this picture was taken last year on christmas.....He would always come down in his robe and with his long tube socks up to his knees.. Why do people wear socks like that, and at what age will I start liking that style..lol.....
My father loved christmas because he loved to see his family so happy. When my brother and I opened our presents, he had almost as much amazement as us kids because my mother did the majority of the shopping. He would get several nice presents for my mother and my mom would make jokes about whether he had wrapped them himself.
I remember the feast that would follow later in the day... My father would take care of the turkey and it would always come out perfect.....We would all eat a little bit too much and I would usually go take a nap..... such good memories
This year I am spending christmas with mother and brother...a nice small christmas.... and even though this is the first christmas without him.....I know my father will be there to join in on the fun, tubesocks and all....

From everyone at ForMyFather

Merry Christmas and have a safe holiday

My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory and very much enjoyed reading some of your entries. I lost my mother in 2000 due to breast cancer, and I remember that first Christmas without her, but like you, I cherished all the Christmas' before that. Also, congratulations on your marathon. I always love reading great stories like that.

As for your blog, I have a request. I have a web site at http://www.faithfulsoles.com that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities. I recently added to the site a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database where members of my site can find a blog of interest to them based on other walkers, runners or athletes of similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind specifically for walkers and runners on the internet. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to put a link to your blog in our Running Blog Database (in less than a week of actively promoting it, we have already had over 60 bloggers from around the world link their blogs to it). Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at http://faithfulsoles.blogspot.com, but most of my running information is on my web site. Also, if there is anyone else in your blogger network that you think would be interested in listing their blog, please feel free to pass this information along to them. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.
