Unfortunately, with an achy hip and twisted ankle, he did not get the training he was aiming for leading up to the race. Going into the weekend, we had a plan for the morning if he wasn't able to reach the end. Though his journey towards the end of the race was rough and painful, I saw my man cross the finish line. I have to say, though it was his accomplishment, that was a very proud moment for me. I even had strangers cheering his name!
Daniel is definitely one of my greatest heroes, and this is only one reason why.
Before the race - excited!
Pushing to the finish line
Proudly wearing his medal!
