    Bloody good effort, Derek! You should be very proud 🙂 You might not think it at the moment but before long you’ll be able to run that 10k without stopping!
    Great video Meghann, love the t-shirts! So nice that you could do the run together – awww…….. 🙂

    That is a great video! I love Derek’s comment at the end, “They don’t just give these away to anyone, you have to earn it.” Very true! He earned it! He was lucky to have you right next to him 🙂

    That was a great video. Even though I have been running for a good few years, I found Derek to be inspiring! He did such a good job.

    Awww, so nice to have his first 10k captured on film! I think finishers medals are always worth the effort anyways 😉

    Way to go Derek!!! Congrats on your first 10K – you did an amazing job.
    You guys are just way too cute. I could never get Charlie to run with me. He has a hard time even running 1 mile 🙂

    While I was watching this video, my boyfriend kept peeking over at the computer. I think he wants to run a race in Disney now too.
