Rachel will be continuing her education at Mount St. Mary’s College to achieve her Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

"Rachel, I don’t think I could have done it without you. The extra care that week of knees and nerves made all the difference. It was tougher than I thought it would be. The highest mileage we had done in training was 20, and in my humble opinion - 6.2 miles is too big a jump for many. However - I still achieved a PR of 6:21 - next year - sub 6 hr is the goal!
