"United to make a difference" Jefferson Elementary School
This year I started my racing season in Edinburg Texas. I was there for The All-America City 10K Run/Walk. This race was founded in 1983 and continues to be a South Texas roadrace tradition. Even tough I finished 4th overall and was the first American, my racing results are secondary compared to the amount of kids I was able to interact with the days prior to the race.
As a family-oriented event that promotes wellness and fitness all elite athletes were encouraged to visit the schools in Edinburg and I want to star off showing you some pictures from our visit to Jefferson Elementary.

Thank you so much to David Chavana and Jefferson Elementary for making this visit happen :)
