My father was one of my earliest sports heroes.
Dad is a humble man, and rarely speaks of his athletic prowess. However, those who “knew him when” have shared stories of his baseball skills while at St. Louis High School in Biddeford, and of his football team captaincy while at the University of Maine.
Dad’s skill on the playing field, and love of physical pursuits, has been passed down to his children and grandchildren.
We have become marathoners and yoga instructors; Little League all-stars and nationally ranked swimming competitors.
For most of us, it is less about the win, than it is about the game.
We like being part of the action.
It is important for each of us to find a way to be "part of the action."
Some people naturally gravitate toward group sports, while others prefer more solo pursuits.
There is no one cookie cutter approach to physical activity that can be easily applied to all people.
This week on the Dr. Lisa Radio Hour, we acknowledge this reality through our conversations with Dr. John Herzog, Mike Chapman, Jim Greatorex, Stan Skolfield and Jared Buzzell. Each of our guests has a slightly different take on how individuals can best achieve optimal physical health.
They are all similar, however, in their view that optimal physical health is entirely possible—no matter what our genetic makeup or family background.
My father was one of my earliest sports heroes, not because he was good at what he did, but because he loved what he did.
He still does. He loves to work and he loves to play.
Above all, he loves to share his life with his family.
Happy fathers day to Charlie Belisle—the best dad a girl could hope for.
Thank you for being my hero, in every way.
