My dad is 69 years old today! Not only is he smart and analytical and capable and witty and tough and dedicated and creative and artistic and living his life “the cowboy way,” he’s in better shape than most people half his age. He’s been riding road bikes for over 20 years and just officially rode 100,000 miles (over two frames) (!!!).

He’s a great dad and a great example of how I want to be at 69. Happy birthday!
