I'm glad it's over, I'm glad his knees are still intact and I'm glad someone took these amazing photos of his latest claim to fame. Let's just hope this is a "been there, done that" moment.
In his own words:
"Here's what I did last weekend. 19km mountain race with obstacles up at Whistler. The worst ones were diving under a submerged wall in glacial water and the 10,000 volts of electric shock at the very end of the race. I got shocked twice and it felt like I had been shot each time. Super fun!"
The moral of this story is that while your children are young, you are constantly trying to equip them with the ability
to be independent and strong so that they will become responsible adults. The only problem is that when they become strong responsible adults they tend to fly the coop to do strong "responsible"??? things. While the other half of the siblings are dancing away in LA, this one is grappling with mud and shock in the mountains. Go figure.
We are immensely proud of our son who is in the best shape of his life at this point both physically and emotionally. As parents, we can't ask for more than that, other than to ask that he might take up ballroom line dancing next :)
