On the mountain, the legs failed me – then I experienced the most beautiful Moment

father has become in December, 70 years old. And often I RUB my eyes and question me: 70? Really? Where is the time? Yesterday, he was still a bit over 40! In addition, my father is 70. He is always in motion, every day. For several hours he runs with the dog. In addition, he has almost more to do than even a few years ago, when he was working. This is what keeps it fresh in your head.

father is today what he always was: friend, Advisor, idea generator, Joker, teacher, role model, Retaining donors, and of course a loving father. A column alone would not be enough to write down how much he has inspired me in many things. There are so many moments, like you probably everybody shares with his parents and has shared. Moments that will always remain in memory. I call them Dad moments, and one day I will write him maybe. In order to remain in good memory. So we don't forget.

Because I'm quite sure that These moments shape us, make something with us. Also, if beloved people are no longer one day. Short biography Mike Kleiß

Run creates change - that I have of my father

learned to Run not often, father, and me. Dad had his phases. These were very athletic, then again the Sport was not a priority. From father I have learned, however, that the Running change creates. Physically and mentally.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s we went to together. In a forest, in Saarbrücken, close to the University. We parked the car just below the Walsgebiets and went a short, but steep path up to the Start.

this Warm-Up Moment was important to me. Because initially, my father was still significantly better in Training than I do. He was already starting a long time, had lots of lost pounds.

I recovered myself a long time of separation, I smoked back then, and much too much. Thus, I had to first Run. I remember well that dad took during the first runs of consideration. We ran mostly in a group, Dad a little in front of me. But always so that he could keep an eye on me. I had to follow great effort. A running coach took care of a little to me, gave me instructions. While I gasped for air, while the father held to the front with running friends.

my father moved me, and other times I drew him

After a few weeks it was terribly hot. The summer was there, and it was one of those incredibly humid and hot summer days. Days on which one should better not play sports. At the time, had not heard the word ozone but still really. You just ran.

Dad and I completed most of ten kilometers. And from the very beginning. On this summer day also. Something was different: We went with the second. The end of the Ten-mile lap was always particularly hard: It is a mountain had to be taken.

under normal conditions, this was a challenge. On this day, Dad and I had exaggerated it. We were started too quickly, I retaliated now on the mountain. We looked at the foot of the rise deep in the eyes and used to hoot independently of each other deeply. This one and a half kilometres to the mountain were for both of us to sample. My father moved me, and other times I drew him.

to hear Only the breathing of the other was. We don't have to do this, the air was missing. Once at the top, we took short in the Arm. Kept us. We needed also. It was a Moment that will be without words for always in my heart. Because we were there for each other. Because we talked.

Because we fought the same fight. Because we took together, a hurdle. As so often in our common life.

to Run combines.

Thank you, Dad!

So it goes.
