I have had the opportunity to travel the world for my job for Navy Medicine and have been moved by the kindness of humanity, the pain of poverty, and the hope of children worldwide, but never before have I had an experience like these last few months.Over the last seven weeks I have chronicled my journey with the Navy’s Global Force for Good providing medical care at a small rural clinic in Kenya on the Morton Report. I also trained for the Nairobi marathon and the ING New York marathon, two marathons, two continents, one week apart and a world of difference.After finishing the ING NY Marathon, I wrote to my editor about my race experience. It was the toughest, most emotionally challenging, physically exhausting, and ultimately inspiring race I’d ever run. She remarked “Andy, your description of the marathon is pretty much a summary of your time in Africa.” She was right.Running with Kenyans tells the story of my experience in Africa. In this special e-book edition, I will share that story with you, along with my personal photographs from my life-changing experience.
