Sometimes, Jack and I are so similar, it makes sense that we’re brothers. Other times, we’re complete opposites, and it makes sense that we’re brothers.
I despise running. Specifically, long-distance running. I’ve been a decent sprinter but I have always languished for anything longer. It was only after training for a 5K that I ever ran a mile in under 10 minutes.
It doesn’t surprise me that Jack is the opposite. He has been training to do a full marathon for years now. I thought a half-marathon was his end goal, but it was actually training for a full marathon.
The weekend before his 40th birthday, he crossed a toilet paper finish line, since we’re in a pandemic.
Jack has a goal to run a full marathon by his 40th birthday. Even though I think it’s crazy, I joined him on his training run on my bike.
I’ve heard of wives who let their husbands have a day to themselves, but Jenni flipped the idea for Father’s Day. She organized a family bike ride and a gaming party with my kids.
I can’t remember the last time I saw my brother in person. It was probably back in February since his schedule is often full. Sure, we’ve Zoomed, Facetimed, Google Hangout, and Housepartied during the shelter in place, but it’s not the same as being with a person in person.
