Once you know him, you love him.
He has some quirks, but his heart is big. One of his quirks is that he doesn't want to show how big his heart really is.
He also doesn't want praise. Or at least loud, noticeable praise.
I only wish he knew how proud I am and how amazing running his first 5K at age 7 really is.
I'll keep reminding him.
Every time he runs.
