5K Zombie Run, Tampa FL

This run was a lot of fun. The zombies didn’t show up for a little bit. After .3 miles blood hungry slow, fast, young and old zombies were serious about taking the flags.

There’s definitely not just one type of zombie (slow ones), some of the zombies were sprinters and it took a lot of fast running and dodging to get away from them..

Flags were the lifeline. I made it through the finish line with one flag and survived the zombie apocalypse.

A Note to My Son

baba and Hadi

It may seem a little odd to write you a small note because you are just over three months old. Promise, I will try to keep it short.

First off, being a father is a tremendous responsibility. Before your birth, I had no idea how being a father would be. Thanks to you, you have thought me a lot. You have truly changed my life for the better.

Second, your mother. She is an amazing person and I am blessed to have her in my life. Soon you will realize it yourself how awesome you mother is.

The moment I saw you and held you in my arms, I had a special feeling in my heart. Honestly, I thought my heart was going to explode with overwhelming love. Son, This love for you is ever growing and everlasting. I am ready to prepare you for this world and promise to be there for you in every situation in life. I will do my best to be the best father. I wish you get everything in this world that you deserve and never settle for less.

This will be your first EID holiday. My heart is filled with joy and words cannot express how excited I am to spend this holiday with you. I wish and pray that you may see many more joyous occasions in your life ahead of you. Eid Mubarak Hadi!

I love you and your mother more than you will ever know.
