150 meters into the race, Derek felt a searing pain. In agony, he fell to the ground with a torn hamstring.
Determined to finish the race, he continues.
Breaking through a security, a man came to Derek’s side.
It was his father.
‘Well then, we’re going to finish this together!” his father said.
Shortly after, he let Derek finish to the finish line, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd of over 65,000.
Always remember this, on this life journey, you are not alone. There’s a father that is always with us.
When you can’t give up, you win in life!
