Is there something sweeter than this?
Just a week after the Berlin marathon, Davon, @dculley1972 was out again. This time, a special run together with Natali, @mycoachnatalie together running the St.George marathon. The motivation behind it? Perhaps the caption below says it all.
“If you can find a partner who not only wants to run a marathon with you, can smile thru the pain of the race & is still smiling at the end, you have found a keeper!!!!”
We love you😍💪!
