Tommy was honoured to receive the award for Road Racer of the Year at the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club banquet 🙂 And, of course, he quoted a Disney character when he went up to receive his award! The video is here:

At 9:54 in this video you will see him receive his award! We were very moved by a speech given by Paralympian Jason Dunkerley, Tommy's friend and fellow distance runner. Jason announced his retirement from Para Athletics and shared some words of wisdom, and we loved his speech and thought Tommy's followers would enjoy it too. Tommy is just beginning his journey towards international competition, just as Jason is retiring. Thank you, Jason, for all you have done to pave the path in para sport for athletes like Tommy. Thank you for your support of Tommy and our family, for showing us what is possible through hard work and determination, for the years you trained alongside Tommy when he first began training with Coach Ray's group at the Ottawa Lions, and for being such a wonderful leader in our Ottawa running community. We wish you well in all that lies ahead! To see Tommy and Jason racing the 5000m together at the National Championships 2016 in Edmonton, click here: youtu.be/dUa4zOL17h0

  1. Hi, I recently found your videos. I absolutely love them. I am actually learning about autism. I have an older half sister who i just met last year (she was adopted) and she has autism. I believe she is nonverbal. It’s hard to understand what she says, but I love spending time with her and she always plays with my pony tail

    1. Hi Sabrina! This is Tommy’s mom 🙂 Thanks for your sweet message. We wish you and your new sister many, many magical moments and love. Thanks for watching and writing to Tommy! Hugs oxox

    1. Hi Matt! Thank you for the amazing picture of Tommy with Mickey and Minnie for Tommy’s 24th birthday! It is awesome! We are so happy you wrote 🙂 Merry Christmas to you! – MaryAnn, Tommy’s mom

  2. I have four of my favorite Tommy you tubes on my google+ page. My most favorite is the one where he’s dancing with the little girl dressed as Anna from Frozen.

  3. Hi Tommy and Company!
    I wrote you a comment a couple months back when I first discovered “lookyus”. I just thought it was time for an update! I still love your videos and I still think that you’re absolutely amazing! That hasn’t changed at all! But I just wanted to let you know that I finished my first half-marathon today in 2:55:13! My goal was to be under 3 hours and seeing as how I only started running 4-5 months ago, I feel pretty proud! Was thinking of you most of the time. It was pretty cold (30 F), seeing as how I’m a Floridian, but I just reminded myself that it wasn’t as cold as it was in Canada. Coming up in April, I’m planning on running a Disney race! I’m really excited about that (I plan on doing many more!). Hopefully I’ll see you around sometime at a race or just a Disney trip. I’m actually going tomorrow, so that’s exciting. I hope you had a good Valentine’s Day! 🙂
    -Your Floridian friend ,
    Abi

    1. Hey Abi, That is an amazing first half marathon accomplishment! You rock! We are sending you cyber hugs. Keep up the wonderful journey, and we hope to meet you someday <3

  4. Hey Tommy! I watched all your videos on the website and 2 on YouTube. I’m even adding something about you and your dogs in my speech about autism!
