This past week, my wife and son were in Calgary for a speed skating camp. Today was a competition for the skaters.
My wife shared with me a live feed of the event on YouTube posted by the Calgary Oval. I watched our son competing from the comfort of our living room. seeing his name on the television brings me a sense of pride and joy.
But watching him skate brings me more joy. He is passionate about his skating and is always pushing to improve his skills.
In his two races- he got new personal bests. He even shaved ten seconds off one of the heats. I’m really impressed and I hope he continues on the path to success in speed skating. The trips out of province are a good chance for him to get better and meet with other skaters.
But I can’t wait for them to come home. I miss the family when they are away.
