In a recent meet, Jonathan was a medal winner for what turned out to be a personal record (PR) in a 5K.
He entered the race determined to be one of the top fifteen finishers, and early in the race he and several of his teammates ran together to pace each other. The third mile is frequently the hardest for Jonathan, and in this race he felt like he had swallowed a brick at the two-mile mark. With that brick sitting in his stomach, Jonathan made the decision that he would just carry the brick to the finish line.
That's exactly what he did!
