@michelle_lafue insisted I be awarded my finisher's medal by a Filipino. I am awed at the pouring of support from Filipinos in Chicago. We really have felt so much love from our Kababayans here. Mabuhay po kayo! Maraming salamat po!
There are many more stories from the race but I will try to sleep first. It has been my best marathon ever and such an honor to have completed my 5th World Marathon Major. This would not have been possible without Anthony's insistence to get the job done and for Jaymie Pizarro's guidance and support. Am deeply honored for our partners' trust: Adidas, Rudy Project, Usana and Gatorade. Thank you, thank you!! 🙏🏻 To God be the glory for carrying me through this race. Special mention to @rainierdelafuente who never left our side 😇 #roadtochicagomarathon2017 #goteampangilinan
