Christine Druava was not a runner, but after learning about a diagnosis, and the fate of her close friend, she found a purpose in becoming a marathoner.

Marathon runners know this feeling very well. Non-marathon runners will never know.  When you hit your wall, it's a feeling you'll never forget.

For the most part I was not nervous for this race. I felt excited and confident in my training. I felt prepared mentally and physically.

Beer, my old friend, I love you, but... we're done.
