Support from my father!
So I reduced my 8K race to a 3K race. I would have taken a 5K option had it existed, but it doesn’t exist. I was genuinely concerned about my ability to finish the race and was worried that I would be kicked off/disqualified.
And my dad, before the website updated that now I was doing 3K, pledged $50. $50! So much belief! I also know how much that money means to him…and yet, he did.
I miss my dad so much, and I am so grateful that he is showing support for me.
