Running the Camino: A Journey to Santiago

From July 1 to July 27, 2019, I ran nearly 500 miles and climbed 50,000 feet to reach Santiago de Compostela, Spain. I didn’t believe I could do it, but somehow I did. And I learned a whole lot along the way. I hope others can learn from my journey too, from the practical to the personal:
