“On Sunday October 25th, I ran the 34th annual Marine Corps Marathon. This was by far the most difficult race I have ever run. My knee problems started acting up very early in the race. My body started to quit on me before I had even started my sixth mile (with 20 left to go). With tears streaming down my face, I grit my teeth and reminded myself why I was running that day. The race was no longer about my own personal running goals. It was about something better than that. I was running down every dollar that each of you committed to the Karen in Burma. Besides the pain I had to fight off for four hours could hardly be comparable to the pain the Karen have felt for 47 years living under the junta. I refused to let myself walk a single step or stop and rest—I pressed on, and ran every single step with each and every one of you.
I didn’t run this race for me. I ran to honor each and every one of you and for those in the world that don’t have the access to peace and health that I do.”
