I'm thrilled to have reached my goal and so pleased that my training prepared me well
So many people encouraged me and kept me going during my training and the event. I was one of 4 PC volunteers that ran in the half-marathon and it was so great to have others there to understand what I was going through. Peace Corps volunteers were also a huge contributor to the high spirits in their efforts at the water and aid stations at Mile 5, 7, and 9. Big Thanks to my Ochi running buddy who also successfully complete his half-marathon. Finally, for the constant support from my family and friends (you know who you are) that have been behind me in this, my appreciation is beyond expression. Many thanks to you all.
