Thanks to all who prayed for me and those who cheered for me! The race didn’t go completely according to plan, but it is an experience that I will never forget. And for that I thank God! It was a great, though difficult experience. I am grateful to God who gave me the strength to persevere through pain and injury. I finished in 5:15.33 (a 12:03 min/mi average pace). It isn’t a spectacular time, but I am proud nonetheless!
