Commit to compete with him
If your Athelete dad stays fit with biking, running, etc. there are plenty of opportunities available to compete with summer fast approaching. Check for local races in your area and get them on the calendar, then commit to train and race with your pops. If you’re a little behind on the fitness schedule, we’d recommend scheduling a race pretty far out in advance. Alternatively, if you’re short on time or not the athletic type, commit to simply picking up his race fees and being his best cheerleader on race day. Encouraging him to get out and do what he loves is one of the richest gifts you can give.
His new favorite gameday essential
Whether it’s his alma mater or favorite pro team, your Athlete dad is a passionate fan. Add to his gameday experience with a handmade project that features his favorite team. Is he into football or baseball? Fall weather fandom calls for a cozy fleece blanket under which he can enjoy the game in person or at home. Fabric patterns for local teams can usually be found at your local fabric store. Does his weekend agenda partially involve relaxing on the couch watching sports? Buy a shirt of his favorite team and turn it into a pillow. A cozy fan is a happy fan. PS Go Hawks.
