For the past few months, I’ve been training through a busy schedule and injuries for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco and fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Towards the end of the race, I was tired: my troublesome knee hurt, soreness had set in and blisters were already nagging at me. But 2 minutes before I crossed the finish line, “Work Bitch” came on my race day playlist and gave me a Britney-bounce to my step to get to work on those last few steps!
I beat my expected tim by over 7 minutes, ran my longest distance and, most importantly, raised over $2100 for the fight against blood cancer! Long story short, I got to work, bitch!
