Detroit Marathon Race Recap 2014

“Congratulations! You did it!” The smile in the eyes of this total stranger perfectly matched the beaming grin across her face. I pulled the corners of my own mouth up into an appreciative grin as I lowered my head just enough for her to get the lanyard around it. The medal was heavier than I’d …
