This blog usually highlights legal developments or interesting articles. This post is different--it's personal, I'm going to brag about my dad.
He's a runner, a stair-climber, a cyclist, a family lawyer, and a licensed (inactive) master plumber. My dad has been participating in the National and Texas Senior Games for years. He's won medals in the 400, 800, and 1500 meter races at the National Senior Games. He finished first in his age group climbing up the Empire State Building in 2012. Now, he's been recognized for his fitness accomplishments--and his callout for all of us to try to be more fit-- in the Texas Bar Journal's In Recess section. I'm proud of his accomplishments, in and out of the courtroom.
He's still at it. He won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at the Texas Senior Olympics this past weekend in the 400M, 800M, and 1500M races
