I've been blessed with amazing men in my life! A dad (Kevin Keppler) whom has taught and loved me unconditional all the seasons of my life and has always cheered me on. My grandpas (Joe Keppler and Roy Carruthers) for showing and sharing your faith in our Heavenly Father, showing me what hard work and dedication means, and for always putting a smile on my face. God has blessed me with three brothers one of which is a father to two beautiful girls. Kyle may you love and fight for your girls with your ruthless spirit all the days of their lives. You are and will continue to be an amazing father.
Ryan is an example of unconditional love. He inspires me every single day! We traveled to Minnesota this weekend and I was able to capture this picture... Ryan is more than a provider for our family. When he arrives home he chases the kids around the house as they hide, Madison yells, "kickle me (tickle)", Mae says, "pull my hair back," and Harrison always wants Ryan to play ball in the back yard... Ryan loves and invest in the kids and I, fights for what is best for us, and is intentionally in sharing and showing God's grace and patience. Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads!
An amazing weekend. I didn't finish the full marathon, but ran hard for 14.5 miles until a migraine took my vision in one eye. After rest I'm feeling much better today... Ryan and the kids greeted me at mile 14.5 and were even running towards me. Until next time, I will cherish those memories and know I gave 100% to the training and race.
