As my rotation in Kenya comes to a close, I know that the work here and throughout the world to help kids live healthy lives has only just begun. Inspired, humbled, moved and ready to Run for Something Better in Nairobi and in New York, I say farewell to the Chebaiywa Clinic, Edward and Michelle.
A trip to my friend Edward's farm in Kapsabet this last week was an inspiring opportunity to learn about sustainable agriculture in Africa, enjoy the best meal I've had yet, and the precious opportunity to witness a touching family reunion.
I don't remember a whole lot about getting to Africa, namely because I took so much Benadryl on the flight to Nairobi that it's all a bit foggy. When I arrived, a guy from the guest house where I would sleep for an evening eyed my Patron Tequila duffel bag warily.
