See that smile?

OK, so it might be a YES! But, front and center winning the race is my youngest son. This was a pro race in Glendale a few weeks ago. Am I proud? Oh, a little bit I guess. Sure wish I had been there. This son of mine could be a poster person for making lemonade out of lemons. He has overcome some pretty substantial issues, become a teacher, husband and father and he continues to be my heartbeat. Kiss, kiss Gil.

You should be proud with your son as a focal point of a grueling sport.
