One of my students, pictured, ran her first marathon a few weeks ago in Chicago. She wanted to go to the pre-race expo and asked if it was possible to miss class that day. I am sure you know my answer. I sent a 26.2 Dragon towel with her for luck and motivation and she was kind enough to make me a thank you card and included this beautiful picture of her, and her towel, after the race. The whole thing just makes me smile :). Besides finishing her first marathon she also got to meet the Kenyan ambassador and the elite Kenyan runners. Awesome job, K!
Through my conversations with K, I also found out that two of my other students were running their first marathons (in different races). These girls/women amaze me! And if all that isn’t amazing enough, get this: one of the sisters of my students runs cross country with the point being that when they run their 5ks (off road) they are running 5 minute miles.
Looks like I have some catching up to do!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday.
