    My grandpa was a gym teacher, coach, and a runner. I never realized how fit he was until I came across some older pictures, though. He passed away a few years ago, but I’ve recently taken up running to honor him (and live up to these genetics).

    This is my grandpa Carmen. He migrated to the US in the '60s from Guanajuato, Mexico. He died before I was born, so I've unfortunately never had the pleasure of meeting him. I only have a couple of photos of him, but this one is my favorite.
