Last year my father had a stroke. He's one of the lucky ones. While his day to day life has been impacted greatly, he is still here with us.

Growing up I played on a travel soccer team, I was never very good & my father came out as a coach each year. Now, I'm convinced he did this because with my lousy skills I never would have made the team without his commitment to be a coach.

We used to have training mile long runs we were supposed to do on our own time. I always cheated. I would run half way around the block, sit on a curb for a bit, and then sprint a few blocks home and pretend that I just ran a mile.

So why run 26 miles 385 yards in one day now? You could call it interest on all those mile long runs I short changed my father growing up.

Or you could say that I'm doing this because in the year following my fathers stroke, he has shown me incredible strength, courage, and self belief. This is my way of saying "Dad, I am so proud of you, and you are an increadible inspiration."

So please, donate whatever you can in honor of not only my father, but whomever in your life has been impacted by a stroke.

You can also make a donation via check. Just send me an email at darmajani@mac.com and I'll give you instructions on doing so!

I also will be writing a blog about my experience for The Huffington Post. You can follow it here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dylan-armajani/
