Nairobi to New York: One marathon done, another one two days away! Jet lag? Yeah, right.

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.

Running with Kenyans: A dream, but who would expect that some of my best marathon coaches are the six- and seven-year-old orphans with no shoes and unending smiles?

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.
