Dear Mom, With Love, Your SonApril 11, 2013

Nearly 4 months ago I began a journey to run a 50 mile ultramarathon in memory of my mother who died 15 years ago from Breast Cancer.  I wanted to mark the anniversary by doing something really special and I thought to myself, “I know if I can just make it to the starting line, I can do this”. I am a firm believer in the importance of doing great things around the time of the death of a loved one. For me it has helped take the sting out of the memories that surround the death of a loved one. Over the years I have written meaningful blog posts about my mother, celebrated Mass (a friend even offered to go to Mass with me to support me), traveled through Europe (twice), gone hiking, played with Lillian, and now this… the ultramarathon. Sure, I have moments, but not like I used to. They tend to be brief and then I move on. Because of those happy memories that I make year after year, I am able to focus more on the memories I want to cherish about my mother. Like the Christmases we spent as a family with my aunts, uncles, and cousins. I enjoy recounting the trips to museums, botanical gardens, and musicals and plays. I think about the homemade food we would prepare together, the crafts we would make, and the plans to travel we talked about.

This year has given me something even more special around the time of my mother’s death. I have seen and experienced some incredible things that I never want to forget. From the countless sunrises as the cool black of night transitions to warm daylight, state line markers from more than a hundred years ago and stone foundations of homes that no longer exist, the friendly horseback riders in the woods who give me advice on where I should run, and most of all, peace of mind. I have begun to live in the here and now and worry so much less about the future and past. I am less addicted to being connected virtually and more connected with my family (admittedly still a work in progress). I have reignited my thirst for adventure and being in the environment. My diet has changed and opened my eyes to what goes into my body for fuel and pleasure. I am more focussed, generally happier, and I have so much more energy to get me through the day. Those are just a few of the many things that I have been able to do – those are just a few of the things that have made my life happier.

So here’s to you mom. Thanks for the memories… still making more with you. Oh yeah, not sure if you heard the news, you’re going to have a grandson now, too. 😉 I love you!

Using Mantras To Get Through The Tough PartsMarch 20, 2013

With just a month away from the ultra marathon that I have signed up for in memory of my mother, I have had to find some inspiration to help get me through the longer runs since they have all been early in the morning and by myself. These mantras help me to remain focused in the present. The first three images below were while running and training for the Lake Waramaug 50 mile ultra marathon and the last one was taken in a private study – all images were taken on my iPhone 5.

Lillian, What Do You Want To Say?February 20, 2013

My Darling Lillian:

Words just cannot elucidate the power you have over your mother and me. Your go get em “no, seriously, I am going to do it and there isn’t a thing you can do about it” stubborn attitude. The look on your face as you raise your hand, index finger pointed to the sky, and say with an intense face, “one more”… one more cookie, book, or game of stack the blocks. Your hugs and kisses for no reason. It’s all too much sometimes. My heart swells with pride when you point to pictures of family and say their name. When you tell us, with words no less, exactly what you want in a completely understandable context. Something I never expected you to be doing at 19 months. You are profound in so many ways. You are loving, caring, artistic, athletic, smart, adventurous, inquisitive, and friendly. Lillian, you amaze me at every turn. Undoubtedly fatherhood is much more enjoyable than I had ever imagined it to be. And I know that every parent feels this way about their children, but I want you to know with certainly that this is how I feel about you. Because it won’t always be just you and me and mommy. Some day you will have a brother or sister who will require a lot of my time and I don’t want you to think for even one second that you mean anything less than absolutely everything to me.

In Memory of Mary Glennon Bergmeier – My MotherFebruary 6, 2013

This year marks the 15th anniversary of my mother’s death from breast cancer, a battle she courageously fought for 4 and a half years. This year I am running my first 50 mile ultramarathon to honor the life she lived. The ultramarathon will be held in Connecticut around Lake Waramaug at the foot of Hopkins Vineyard. I am already more than a month into my training and things are going really well.

To mark the date and in honor of my mother, I am raising money for breast cancer research. All proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation based in Austin, Texas. Please consider giving to this amazing charity.

Adirondack Balloon Festival – 2012September 24, 2012

This weekend we made the trip home to visit my family and to attend the 2012 Adirondack Ballon Festival in Queensbury, NY. As a child the Balloon Fesitval was an annual event to see these monstrous birds of flight, but it has never worked out where I could have taken Diana. Joined by Senior, we woke up before the rooster crows and made our way to the event. Seeing the balloons go off this never gets old, but it was great to see them with people who have never had the pleasure of going. You can almost live the moment through them.  Here are a few images from the day…

The first balloon of the day begins to inflate.



And we have liftoff. 



This balloon was Diana’s favorite.

My loves looking great at 6 AM… 



 Senior, A.K.A. Grandpa, showing Lillian the balloons. 









Sometimes it can be really easy to get wrapped up in an event and focus on the details. The Balloon Festival reminded me to keep my eyes wide and remember the bigger picture.
